Well, Mum is feeling a bit under the weather, so I thought that I had better write something on her behalf.
I came to see her yesterday morning, and not to take any chances this time, I just got a cab from the station........

Yesterday, we spent the day finishing off getting the stuff that is important to her for the degradable helium balloons, capes and other bits and pieces.
We completed the list of who has what to add to the will.

Dot a Pete kindly brought a wheelchair for Mum to use, and we are going to try it out today in town.

Last night mum found it really hard to get to sleep.
She took all her pain and sleeping meds, that normally knocks her out within the hour. Last night they did not seem to work.
The pain that she gets in her back and side just wouldn't let up to let her sleeping pills kick in.

After making sure she had everything she needed I left her in the dark to relax, I told her that if she can't sleep, to come get me because I would be up for a while, reading.
Mum didn't come, so I guess she got some sleep.
I found out this morning it was only about 4 hours though.

Mum has been resting physically, at least for the past 3 days, so hopefully she will have enough energy for our trip to town, and to make the presentation to The Trustees of Compton Hospice tomorrow.

And maybe, she will write her own blog tomorrow or Friday.

carol i have been following your blog for sometime. My husband was diagnosed with small cell endocrine cancer of the bladder. He has now had this removed plus prostrate and all lymph glands in that area. two weeks ago he was told that they had removed all the cancer. You are such a brave lady. Hope you managed to get some rest, your family must be so proud of you. God Bless.
