Thanks, Paul , I really hope you are on the mend.
Ma will be coming home on Friday ... I'm amazed at the speed she recovered from this (it was only minor) but at 83
Her speech is about 99% ok now ...and will improve.
My brother and I have decided to spend every other night at her place for 2 weeks (me Friday, him Saturday etc) just until she settles back down.
We see her every day anyway ... but I think it's the nights that will make her feel a bit better/ safer.
Its been a bloody hard 72 or so hours, and more to come ...arranging home help etc, but I guess that's what you do.
All this, and I still cant find a job
God, I've applied for heaps ...but it seems when your 60 .... your no longer required.
I do have 2 in the pipeline ...so fingers crossed.
But all that aside .... look after yourself, and thanks for your thoughts Paul.
