Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Hi,

I've mostly been sitting on my coil of rope again, as over here things were relatively well, compared to what some of the crew go through. However, this summer my mother stumbled over here rollator (if that's the English word too), had a TIA, and broke her right wrist - order of events can't be reconstructed. She's had therapy since, 10km cycling from here, staying there as well.


Good news: She's now home (5km cycling), before Christmas.
Good news: The wrist is healed to the point where she can write legible again.
Less good news: My mother can now only stand for short periods of time, and needs the rollator to get around the room. I get the impression, this time this is not expected to get much better.

All of this not to solicit pity; my mother's still sound of mind, and I expect she'll be able to remain living mostly independent for some time longer, except for care for some common things she's now unable to do. However, we're now heading for waters we're unfamiliar with. Are there things that other members of Jane's Rainbow's crew have unfortunately found out the hard way that we should try to do or avoid?

And regardless:
Merry December Days to all.
