They also say that as she can't swallow that they would have to feed her by tubes from monday. Really we have to wait and see what each day brings. There was no expectation of her regaining recognition of us yesterday. This frail lady has such resiliance. It will be all the harder to make a decision about her being fed by tubes, is this what she would want?
I am trying to occupy myself with some sewing. Just about everything has leaked this week as well, and the plumber is back again dealing with a radiator. Such insignificant things, but added to a difficult time. Our bathroom cold water supply also sprung a leak and went through the light fitting in the room below. That was a few days ago.
The bath panel got broken taking it off, and a huge chip out of the side of the bath. That can be patched up I am sure with some paint on bath enamel. I am not sure if I can repair the bath panel, it was something I decorated with some sea creatures about five years ago in an arty moment. I am going to leave it another week to make sure t's all dry under the bath before putting it back.
The days seem to go by in a blur of visiting Aunty, and my Mother in Law who is in an assisted care home. She now has advancing dementia, which in some ways spares her the anguish of knowing her sister is so ill.
I don't know how we would get through the difficult days we are living in without our trust in God. It's child like, just knowing He is there and things will take their course. Our lives are not our own, they are given us to make the best use of, until we are fit and ready to be admitted at last to His eternal presence.
