My visit to Rosemary this afternoon was more rewarding than usual, she seemed much brighter and talkative, however, she is still not eating as well as she should, her main meals are left mostly untouched, but today with the help of a pretty young nurse, Rosemary ate most of her desert but still declined the main meal. Maybe with a little more perseverance will see Rosemary back to eating normally once more,
The Company Director of Hawksbury cleaning and, "Bowyer's' Carpet laying and cleaning, visited his mum Rosemary with his lovely wife Samantha and beautiful daughter Charlotte. Thank you Andrew..Our other sons and their families have used FACE BOOK which is our son Christopher's media thingy as mentioned earlier I have enough on my plate without the agonies of F B,

For FACE BOOKERS eI You may be aware I have not not posted much over the past three months and this was due to moving to a new residence and being off line and otherwise busy with packing and unpacking plus now we have the additional problem with hospital visits and associated problems of Rosemary's upper limb fracture and future rehabilitation. however, recently Christopher our eldest took it upon himself to promote a Face Book Thingy on my behalf and without consultation, he being aware of the restrictions within my life style should not have done so without my consent which is fairly obvious a 'No' thank you'. Chris will be aware of this by now and hopefully will be able to rectify his work and inform his followers ? This is not a stab at Face Booker's they have their own idiosyncrasies and like so do Bloggers If you find it tough going contacting me, try my blog, simply post something like FB, Like. Dislike. K M A. Or D D Y B.......... Have a nice. day; I am sure it will be better than mine at present.
Vest back soon.

- Not impressed with John Hunter Hospital. They have lost Mum's bottom denture, don't make sure she has at least her top denture in when served meals, think that broccoli and carrots are soft food and give Mum a cup of hot water, tea bag and milk and expect her to be able to make her own tea. Duh! In addition, the unit manager Glenda comes across as an unbending hard case with tunnel vision. She gives not an iota of satisfaction that my concerns are being met - Even when things are obviously not! Further, she told me yesterday that Mum would be transferred to Wyong Hospital ASAP. However, I spoke to Wyong Hospital this morning and they said they have no record of a transfer request. When I told Glenda about this, she said no, a transfer request has definitely been made. Argh.

Yes I am back, but for how often is more than a guess. Our new residence a Large four bed two B/r and large garage lge kitch two reception a large garden in two parts with a 40 x 25 patio on one level is much better than our previous home, with plus A/C and overhead fans.
I am not getting out much lately, mainly driving to the shops is my lot. Rosemary goes to care three days a week , which allows Chris our son and myself time to ourselves without constant interruptions., Rosemary's dementia is a problem but fortunately rosemary hasn't been walkabout for a while now that we have a secure perimeter.
. I become exhausted fairly quickly and limit my activities to moderate exercise plus I still have a small degree of pain due to a recent procedure in my nether regions.
We also have a Cleaning lady for two hours weekly and a gardener who averages one hour weekly < Rosemary has a lady who shower's her Three times each week and I do it in between when
necessary. Chris does the laundry, and I am the Chief Chef, I also feed the cats and generally look after myself.. Today is one of my free days Rosemary will be home soon, I now have to prepare dinner so I will finish this later.
3 25 pm I hear Chris talking to Rosemary I come out of the bathroom and see her lying on the floor in pain , Chris was there when she fell over the step in the hallway..'
Oh dear; Rosemary is in strife the Ambulance was called several paramedics eventually moved her to a stretcher it seems she has a fracture above her right knee and hip, she was taken to hospital Chris has followed in the car, will let you know more later.
Miss you All, Vest ....back soon
