Where to start?
As some of you know, my Mum, Jean, passed away last Tuesday, 10th July.
In some ways it was a blessing as she had been suffering with Dementia for quite a few years now.
Here she is with Dad when they were first together.
I hope she will find some peace now.
Thanks to everyone for the wishes, cards and flowers (below)
(more cards arrived after I took this picture)
Then, whilst sitting on the phone - doing nothing I might add! - my right knee decided to swell until it was the size of a watermelon!
A trip to A&E
A course of Anti-Inflamatory tablets
A pair of crutches
A visit to my private consulant
An MRI scan
A second visit to the consultant
An arthroscopy of my knee (surgery)
All within a week - Thank God I kept on my Bupa from a previous job!
Can't get worse I hear you say?
Saturday night - Dad broke his dentures
George (the cat) starts limping and can't put pressure on his back leg.
Sunday - trip to vets - he's now on Anti-Inflamatory medication too (Good job they don't give crutches to cats or we'd have three pairs - Dad still using his following knee replacement!)
Monday - trip to dental technician for repair.
If someone wrote this in a book you'd say - No! not possible, totally implausible!
