well i went to see the MS nurse, at 3pm today. was with her over an hour, she was so helpful, wants me to try 2 new tabets,to help the pain and make my nights sleep better. i wake up after 3 hours,in a lot of pain legs very bad. also my ankle is playing hell. also is sending me to a speech therapist to help with my slurred speech i get sometimes and the swallowing problems. all in all, very helpful. i have also "volunterred" somehow lol to help a new chap she has just got. my age,just diagnosed and having trouble coming to terms with the idea. know that feeling. glad to help if i can. she is writing to my GP outlining these things, and to get him to change my tablets. unfortunately he is away for the next 2 weeks and i see her in 2 weeks time to see how i feel on them. so we will see there what happens.
as i have written before mum has a carer come in every day,tracey, to wash her and help her dress,30 minutes every morning,and a shower once a week. all has been well mum likes her,until this past 2 to 3 weeks,she has been getting to mine at 6.50 whips round and gone by 7.10. her firm is putting so much onto her she cant get round. so i have not been to happy. now,unfortunately mum mentioned this to my friend pam,when she rang mum last friday. even more unfortunate pam was being blunt drunk. she drinks,a lot. doesn't admit it mind. nooo not me mort, don't drink. now normally she wouldn't have taken any notice when mum said about Tracey. shame she wasnt normal. she rang traceys boss. her friend works for the firm tracey works for. and said were they aware tracey wasnt doing her job, etc. i had a phonecall from the boss,saying was this true? i said ok,she had been getting here early,and leaving before time,but mum liked her and it was the firms fault she had to rush round. anyway, because of pams interference mum now has only 15 minutes every morning,with 30 minutes on a thursday for shower. boss said as she was getting done in that time, that was all that was needed. i was furious. anyway,when tracey came monday i explained. then went over to pams. and told her in future to mind own business. i am writing to social worker, and complain about mum losing 15 minutes. it was social worker who decided on the 30 minutes, and they are now paying for 30 instead of 15. see what happens. i do wish pam stopped drinking.
lastly a few pictures. these show the baskets and tomatoes they have grown so much.
take your pick lol first should be ready by the weekend
take care all
