Over the last week I have taken Mum for 2 scans and an x-ray ... so at least we know she isn't hollow! So far she has been diagnosed with mild Atrial Fibrilation and mild gall stones. The gall stones bit is actually good as 4 years ago they wanted to operate for major gall stones ... so I have focused on the positive for that. The echo that showed the heart problem was a few miles away, even though they live near a hospital - so that was weird. The person who did the test told Mum that she needed to go on asperin (which she already takes) and to see her doctor at some point.
So, not great news, but a lot, lot better than it could have been.
So with those and work I decided to take Friday afternoon off and meet up with Christine (my friend from Church whose mum has just died) and go for a walk.
So, yesterday Jiffy and I drove to her place, she got in the car ... and the heavens opened!
So we drove to a shopping area to let Jiffy have a walk and then put him in the car and went back to have tea and cakes! As we finished though, the weather cleared and we headed off to our original destination and had an hours walk. Any excuse to to take some photos!
Loved this idea - an ornament, telling you what type of tree it is
