I’m so glad I’ve had the flu jab . Lee has caught it and he’s been in bed for 3 days . He should have had it, he’s diabetic and also a carer, but hes been busy with work. I lost a carer about a month ago and my sister’s been coming up twice a month and staying over I’m so glad of the help with Lee being ill he’s not been able to do anything . Tomorrow I’ve got an agency coming they are expensive but I can’t manage without the help . Thankfully I’ve got enough from direct payments to pay at least temporarily. Michelle and Frazer xx
Oh Michelle, poor Lee, hope he recovers quickly for both your sakes… It’s always a worrying time when someone in the family is poorly, but rest and plenty of fluids will aid his recovery.
sorry to hear that Michelle,you must be so worried about Lee,the flu is just awful i have not had it since 1987 thankfully,but i started with the MS 6 week after it.i dont have the flu jab because i dont really agree with them.my daughter got the swine flu a few year ago and that was very scary,i nursed her through it and was sure i would catch it but luckily i didn’t.Hope Lee recovers very soon and i hope you get the help you need too,ring SS and tell them whats happening,or your dr they can send a team out in emegencies i think.
So sorry to hear Lee is poorly, hope he gets well soon!
I know how hard it can be when the person that does everything is out of action, my husband has just had a total knee replacement and I’m finding it so difficult. Also made even more difficult as I had an operation a couple of weeks ago!
I am sure you must be exhausted,
Try and take care of yourself too,
Poor Lee hope he is soon back to normal (whatever normal is?)
Thanks everyone, he’s still not well but better than he was . I’ve told him next time he must definitely have the flu jab . I’m not so well either but the flu jab has helped it’s just a cold and sore throat nothing like what Lee has had. I’m just trying to stop a uti I use catheters and I’ve had awful burning I’ve been taking the cystitis remedy …its disgusting but takes the acidic out of urine so doesn’t burn hopefully I can stop a uti. The agency came yesterday there were two of them. They are expensive but did a good job. It’s not personal care just helping with day to day cleaning . Molly makes quite a bit of mess and when we have our other autistic daughter home between them upstairs can be like Armageddon. I can only cope with so much . I used all of my spoons and next week’s (spoon theory) I’ve been having to take Molly to the gym , it’s only down in the village , not too far but when it’s cold or raining I don’t always feel like it . The wheelchair was skidding all over the place when we had the snow. Frazer likes going to the gym, he loves the attention. It’s been hard I feel like I’ve been left dealing with things . Last night the gym manager had a word . They are not sure how to cope with Molly, she’s been going a couple of months but they arnt sure how to deal with her. I sit outside in my wheelchair with Frazer so l don’t see everything I think she mither’s…well they did say she could talk to them anytime, but it’s getting a bit too much. She sneaked her one direction dolls in … They all had a go on the running machine. If I didn’t laugh I’d cry ! Michelle and Frazer xx
LOL at the dolls going running!!
XXX Happy Christmas Michelle and wooof wooooof woof for Frazer
Michelle you are brilliant keeping everything together. Changing the subject a bit, I take apple cider vinegar to keep UTIs at bay, it really works. I have a SPC and haven’t had a UTI in over a year. It’s also supposed to help with weight loss too, bonus!!! Jane xx
