Whom the gods would destroy

Mum fell and fractured her hip yesterday. She was operated on last night. Neil my brother in law is a doctor in the same hospital and spoke to the surgeon/consultant who said the procedure went well but warned that we should expect to see a level of general deterioration in her overall state.

My brother John is with my father in the family home as Dad is not capable of looking after himself. We have got him booked into Belle Vue (registered with the Care Standards Inspectorate of Wales to accommodate care for 40 persons with dementia) from today as he needs someone with him 24/7 and we can't provide that as a family because we all work.

John sent me a bitter-sweet text last night after midnight as he was packing a bag for the old man, and I imagine that the admission today will be painful.

Needs must. How was your day?
