Still not got time to reply to comments - but please be assured that your love and support means a lot.

It has been a tough week, but ended on a fairly positive note.

Last week Mum was still very muddled, and not accepting help, so I had to make the decision to give up work to come home to look after her (& Dad, of course).  She was still very week as well, so it looked as if I would need a lot of work done at the house.  So, my cleaning increased (!!!) ... and as the week progressed Mum got a little easier.

However yesterday she suddenly got uite a bit stronger, and today they brought her from the hospital for an hour to show that she could walk up and down staires, and make a cuppa .... normally this is done at the hospital, but they decided to bring her home so that she didn't have the extra problems of her lack of sight.  She passed the tests!  She should be home in a couple of days now.

So now I am looking at working less hours, and next week getting into work, but commuting from here, so I am around as much as I can. as well as trying to get some of my life back.

As you can guess my own symptoms are bad ... I know that my faith in God is holding me at this time.  It is Him that has given me the strength to survive the stress and work that I have had to do.

I miss LJ, but will try to get back to you soon ... although next week, as well as the commute I still have Christmas decs to take down and pack away!

*hugs*

I am glad to hear your Mum is improving - I hope her home-visit goes well. But do take care of yourself, too.

It has certainly been a weird start for a new year - and still continuing.

I am updating again soon.

You have such a lot on your plate right now. Your parents are so lucky to have you close by and willing to help with their care.

I'm so pleased your mum is improving and that she'll be home soon. But I second deborahw37's comment re trying to get some help, you have to remember that you're not well either and overdoing it could make things worse in the long run. I know how independent your mum and dad like to be though, so not an easy thing to contemplate and try and get done.

Sending lots of love and hugs as ever. xx

More hugs!

Make sure you're taking care of yourself as well as your folks during this. Eat well. Get sleep (as much as you can). And do what you need to do.

It has been a while since I checked in here, and after reading through quite a number of your posts, whoa! I'm sorry I wasn't around to offer some support, even if just through comments.
I am happy to read that your Mum is improving, but sad to read that you are still having difficulty with your symptoms.
*hugs*
