The weekend will start here for Emma. She'll get back from school, have a cuppa with a nice piece of carrot cake and the latest Take A Break. Magazines are her new obsession. It's lovely to see her enjoying her reading.
My sisters operation was a success- they managed to reverse the procedure she had a couple of years ago. It will make a huge difference to her. She is still very groggy- and yesterday the nurses expected her to get up and sit in the chair. But she's still attached to drainage and drips and painkillers. No one actually helped her- not sure she's actually capable at the moment. They also left her sealed sandwich- and after chemo she was left with problems with the feeling in her fingers and feet. So she couldn't actually open it. My mum opened it when she visited- but said it was very dry and unappetising anyway. They don't use butter.
I'm feeling a bit touchy today- cos my one aunt has already started rumblings about whether my cousins are needed to take my mum shopping etc.I have asked if she needs to go- but my mum is almost impossible to help. She won't ask- so you have to guess what she needs and provide it! My one cousin took my mum and niece home after visiting last night. My fil has also been in hospital- so yesterday my dh visited him. She has just succeded in making me feel guilty that we aren't doing enough to help.
