    After spending five minutes or so - AGAIN - running around the threads, frantically trying to find the Hencammer (Kate in this case) currently online with me... I've started this thread as a place to meet when someone is on with you. Maybe it will even work! Let's see.

    (Here I am - where are you? That's what birds are basically saying to each other as they fly together in flocks.) :D

    Study and Exams - - - Yuk

    I did a degree with Open University many years ago. I would get up at 5.30am to get a couple of hours study in before getting ready for work. That is when I found I am a morning person. If I study at night I shortly find my nose on the book with loud snores..

    I couldn't believe it when I got my "Pass" letter. I was on a high for days!

    I hope they can do something to help her with the enlarged heart, although the real fix is a replacement valve and she is not strong enough for that. She only weighs 6 1/2 stones.

    It is hard to watch a parent get worse in front of your eyes.

    I look in my Mum's eyes and I see young eyes looking back at me and it breaks my heart to have her unwell.

    Well, worrying, but I'm glad you are back on your feet.

    I have swollen middle toes and fingers - which I finally figured out is a side effect of digging in the dirt for hours on end. BUT the little wonders have sprouted: Peas, broccoli, one tomato (so far), lettuce. And the strawberry plants have blooms. I'm waiting on the potatoes, carrots and green onions. I go out and stare at them about once an hour.

    :cat:Hi girls, sounds like great advice Ollie!!
    Laughter is good for the heart and soul they say!
    I have a weird silly sense of humour which gets me out of many a downer.
    I am thankful for hencam friends
    I am thankful for my cat Thomas
    I am thankful for my family
    I am thankful I have enough to eat
    I am thankful I have reasonable health
    I am thankful I live in a nice home
    I am thankful for the sunny day and the rainy ones.
    :group-love:

    I sit and stare at the garden for hours - so exciting watching plants grow. :P Yes. Well, no, not edible yet but the little green tops of potatoes, peas (2 kinds), tomatoes, kale, and lettuce are all showing themselves. And strawberries and rhubarb. No onions or carrots yet...

    I'm putting in a corn field now. :D We'll see if there is enough sun here.

    I'm sorry that I have been missing for a few days.

    Mum is nearly finished with digging the escape tunnel and might make her escape to-day or tomorrow. :-) I will find out for sure when I get the MK General at 4 pm.
    She is agreeing to a heart valve replacement operation so we have to now wait to wait for a consultation with the surgeons, then she has two more procedures taht can be done at out-patient clinic and if all goes well, then she can have her heart op. If all goes well, then she could be having this operation in 1 to 12 weeks time.
    I'm happy in one sense because she is coming home and I can get some normality back.

    On Saturday there was a Hindu religious ceremony at the Stone Circle in front of the Peace Pagoda in Milton Keynes, the weather was glorious and it was so nice and peacefull. Mind you, did start the day very early to help cook food for over 200 people expected to turn up at this function...and there is something so nice about being out in the fresh air.
    Then I had a very good friend of mine come to stay the weekend and we spent Sunday at Wrest Park, Silsoe, Bedfordshire. There was a garden show on and we had a lovely day out and then we went to Woburn Abbey Craft Show yesterday. An old favourite and again, it was a lovely day out.

    It was nice to have the chance to dress up for Saturday and it was nice to spend 3 full days out in the open. I feel like I got to recharge my batteries and feel happier that Mum is coming home.
    :-) :-) :-)

    OK.....breaking news....well almost breaking news....
    Mum made her escape from the hospital yesterday. Took me forever to find her just so I could bring her home. They had moved her to 'After Care Lounge' about 2 miles away from the ward she was in and I had to go thru many doors and many corridors and follow dodgy signs, up a flight of stairs just to find her.
    You'd think that a lounge where patients wait to be collected would be near an exit and on the ground floor..........
    now we wait for various appointments to turn up.



    Anyway, Ma is home and I can get some normality back in my life.

    I will continue to wait for the other situation in my life to be sorted out.

    It just wouldn't be hospital if things were that easy. I am so glad that your Mum is home, you are doing real well, gradually sorting every out in a quiet dignified manner.
