The Family Bandwagon

Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

Mum on Clive's computer

Almost two weeks since Mum had key hole surgery for carpal tunnel. She is doing well but I still need to stay here to help with dressing and undressing. Today we visited the eye surgeon because her eyes were watery. He will do a small op to enlarge the tear duct on 11th  October. We see the hand surgeon on 6th October  to hear when he will do her other hand. I think I'd prefer we wait until next January to let the right hand fully heal since I will need to be here for another month after that is done.
Mum goes to Denise's for the weekends so I have that time at home.and dancing. I can leave Mum for a few hours in the evening or afternoon now as she can manage to get a cuppa when she wants.
We are looking forward to visits from Dayna, Bruce and Millicent and Glenn, Dee and Jules in December.


  1. Commenting so you know I'm finally catching up on the bandwagon.

    Glad to hear Nana's doing well. Looking forward to seeing everyone this Christmas, and I've just been looking at campsites between here and there for my bike ride in a week.

  2. Finally a night at home on 22nd October. Mum will be at her place on her own and I'll call there in the morning to see if she needs help with the stockings and bandage on the knee. The eye procedure went well so we don't go back to him until next April. The surgeon suggested leaving the left hand until January in order to see if the op has made any difference.
    Mum backed the car out on Friday. Still hasn't driven since before the hand op. Now we know it takes five weeks of help before she is right again (at least).
