Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
must be difficult not to let a little sarcasm slip, wendy. my dad will be 89 next month, still living more or less independently and a bit cranky , so some people tend to avoid talking to him. my brother and I try to discourage him from being so tight spending on himself, even though we assure him we are not worried about what he leaves us.
I do know he appreciates that I see him most days ,and I am sure that even in your mums dementia ,she will know what a lovely daughter she has.

worryingly tommys x ray today showed no improvement. in himself ,he swung from vigorous resistance to the face mask, to later weakness and sleeping. beckys back has been feeling the strain this morning when a friend she expected to help did not turn up, and staff didn't help much. she made an official complaint. I was visiting dad, not knowing she was struggling.
thankyou for your support. bless you    pete.
