She's as settled as possible given the poor conditions on the ward, and actively enjoying the grapes which I took her. I got a grin out of her telling some of her rude jokes to one of her nurses :-)

I also got a reasonably constructive conversation with the hospital consultant, who seems to be doing a moderately thorough physical work-up on her - results due tomorrow. As soon as a suitable bed (in a female ward, YAY!) comes available, she should be transferred to a more appropriate hospital - much nearer to me, too.

However, I've unearthed a catalogue of serious communications failures as long as your arm which led up to this crisis, and everyone involved with her care is saying to ME, "Please keep us properly informed, no one else does." WTF, guys, WTF. I reckon, having pieced it all together, she should never have been discharged when she presented at A&E with the broken wrist a week ago. Still, all water under bridges ...

I am off to snoo now, hopefully to be in a fit state for work in the morning as per (purr!) and then I hope I know which hospital to go to for visiting hours in the evening ...

I hope all is well with you and yours, gentle readers.

I've been following these posts with a certain sense of alarm, "spiced" with the knowledge that I wouldn't have a clue where to start looking for help.

I'm relieved there is some notion of a beginning, in the constructive conversation, but geez must all these care givers be completely dependent on you to guide them?? Argh, indeed.

If it helps to know your hope of goodness for your readers is not in vain, then I can say things in our neck of the woods are well. We're also thinking of you.

PS more hugs to you!

I don't know where you'd start with all this, but thank goodness someone seems to be on the ball.

Is it possible to get a meeting of all the people who are asking you to keep them in the loop, and then tell them that they're here in one place and it's time for them to get their game faces on and start communicating?

That's good news. I've been following this, and have every sympathy, but I suspected you didn't want a load of posts saying, "I'm so sorry" but unable to offer any decent advice or help.

Take care of yourself as well as your mother...
