coincidence or not.

If i was of a nasty suspicious nature,which of course i am not,much,i would be rather cynical about the phone call i had this afternoon at 3.45. hello,mr.lake? this is V from social services,i understand you enquired about having a carers asseessment? i did yes, well,i am not the carers assessor,i do all the assessments for care needs.but i will be happy to come and see you next week,thursday at 10.30 be ok??oh yes;lol. now,i have had no word from MPs office,they did say they were so short staffed due to illness,but its rather a co-incidence that after i had rung MP social suddenly found this assessor. must have been just lying around the office doing nothing.lol.anyway,she is coming to see me,so hopefully i can get a care plan sorted for mum if i do need to be in hospital or away for any length of time.taken 4 months,4 phone calls,2 letters so far.we will see.
Mum continues to have the most awful pain in her feet due to the gout,and has been in bed all day again today.most unlike her.i have to go to cromer hospital tomorrow afternoon to see dr.C my MS consultant,i hope she will be ok on her own until i get home.think i can get brrian to call in.hope so. on monday i have to be at norwich by 9.30 for pain management clinic for back,tracey is going to come back mid morning,i shouldnt be too late.hope the tablets will have helped ease her pain by then.
I am tired,i ache,and my MS has gone ballistic.interesting little side effects,poor balance i notice,hands dead,blurry vision.always the same when i am tired and worried.and angina not helping.but we carry on.take care all.mort and thanks for all the kind comments and advice.

Sorry Mort missed yesterdays report..what a carry on with Social..I hesitate to say...services ! not much about service with you is there. It has to come to an end Mort. It is so hard for you to be strong and fight and fight...Oh how I wish I lived nearby I would take them on for you, believe you me they would act then LOL...
Please keep us up to date when you are able. And I will keep praying that action is taken soonest possible...You should have had a care package set up long time ago. what about your GP. have they been involved. If not can you get them to do somthing ? other idea is local church even if you don't actually belong to one of them most ministers are helpful and can weigh in as well to get help. The more you have behind you the better it might be.
Much Love friend, Sybil xx

So glad to hear that someone is finally going to come around. I am not nagging now, but You know when your MS kicks in high gear you have to take care of yourself. You know that I watched someone I love go through that before he never stopped regaining what abilities he had. YOU TAKE AS MUCH CARE AS POSSIBLE, MORT.
