Mother is ill

Mother is not well. She has pneumonia.

This is not good, especially when you are 80.

She has steroids and anti-biotics to take. Trouble is, she is coughing so much that she's puking everything up, including medication.

So, have been at her's most of the day. Trouble is, she won't shut up...and I mean this in the nicest way. If she stopped talking then throat wouldn't tickle so much and she wouldn't cough, etc, etc, etc.....

Anyway, made her dinner, which she ate and rubbed Vick on her back to help her breathe and sleep before we headed home, weary.

Tomorrow she starts the steroids....six tablets in one go!! Plus the antibios.

She's adamant that she won't go to hospital!!! And I don't blame her.

Anyway, holidays are a curse for our family. Something ALWAYS happens at Easter and Crimble. Easter is usually illness and Crimble is bad luck/sadness time. Happens every year, without fail

Does this happen to anyone else, I wonder?.
