Dilemmas faced by the elderly are far beyond difficult
I phone Mumsie regularly, try to visit at weekends if I find that she will welcome a visit. She’s beginning to prefer to be alone, finding reasons to send dad out of the house.
You can hear so much more than what is said in a mother’s voice. In the last 2 months mum’s has changed dramatically from fluid bubbly chatter through a slow jerky rap to a slower monotonous drone.
The doctor took her off the drug that was depressing her and replaced it with Aspirin.
I want her to be happy, this gift is sometimes easy with little things like a family afternoon sleep-over.
