Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my blog.

I had hoped to get this blog post written the day before Christmas eve but my mum’s health took a turn for the worse.
My regulars readers will know that my mum has been very unwell for the last few months. The hospital had discharged her to a residential home for an interim placement for a few weeks to see if her condition improved, which it did. Then on December 23rd she started having a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA, Mini-Stroke). The doctor was called and treated her for the condition, but the following day (Christmas eve) she had another TIA so the Paramedics were called in. My mum was readmitted to hospital, where she had a further 7 TIA’s over the Christmas period. She has now been discharged again and has returned to the residential home, for the time being, I hope.
