I haven't posted for a while - mainly because I didn't feel up to it as my health (and weight) have been deteriorating.
My husband has been having more falls due to his usually low blood pressure dropping even further when he stands. Although we have managed to get a lovely lady to come and help him shower and dress, this has come too late for my health and I have put him in a Rest Home for 10 days. I now realise that I will have to do this on a regular basis.
The staff at the Rest Home are lovely and yesterday I walked the 2 kms to visit - luckily I managed this between showers.
I am now halfway through my break and am starting to feel better although I am still extremely tired. We have been having miserable weather with HEAVY showers but it is about to change and the next few days are forecast to be fine but cold - 4 degrees C at night and max 10 C which for us is quite cold. Still it will be marvellous to see the sun.
Tomorrow I have my three monthly medical check and then go to Pilates - it is a fortnight since I did anything apart from in my carers role. I will also go out with friends for a coffee or walk while the weather is fine.
There is a lot to look forward to and, once I get my health back and start to put some weight on things will look up. The rhododendron is in flower but since i have added a storage device in the last couple of days I find I am now unable to view photos from my camera. Will have to wait for a friend to return from holiday and get this sorted.
