Hello hello. Grace here.
I spent the day with Mum again, taking shifts with Dave. Mark and Alex have returned to SF today, but it’s been lovely to all be together, especially under the circumstances.
Mum says she feels like a pin cushion. The cannula has been in and out of about every area of her arms and hands, and it’s now in her left hand (she’s a leftie!) so I’m writing the blog for her again today. We’ll keep it short and sweet!
It’s a quiet weekend at the hospital… well, where Mum is! Thankful that she has her own room, and gets to avoid A&E and a busy ward during the weekend. Mum has had a low day today, which I think is more than understandable. On top of everything else, she found out that she’s lost a dear old friend. And that just tipped the scales a little.
Mum has read every single one of your comments, posts and well wishes, and spent a happy hour doing so. Thank you!
Quote of the day…
So many people are hanging on by the thinnest of threads. Treat people with kindness; you could be that thread.
Frustratingly, I have to return to NYC tomorrow for a 3 day audiobook production, which I cannot reschedule or change. Or at least… my lovely mum will not allow me to miss it or risk losing the gig. It’ll be okay. I’ve pushed back a week so far, and Mum is in good hands. Over to you Dave! 🙂
Keep the positive energy coming!
Travel gently, friends.
Lotsa love, Grace x
