Mother in law phoned today and she is still no better, so she needs to see the doctor on Monday morning, as he instructed. She "sat" on this illness for two whole weeks without saying a word to *anyone*, even though we saw her for several hours on one day last week and this week, which has certainly not helped the situation at all.
My mother had a slightly more comfortable night, and our lovely doctor popped round to see her this morning (he is still off-duty and doing all this without pay, but he is a "proper" doctor who does care about his patients !) and gave her another injection of Demerol and increased her oral painkillers. She is able to drink fluids but cannot eat. So quite what will happen next, I have no idea.
She cannot stay home like this indefinitely and at some point will need to go into hospital for investigation/long-term pain control strategies.
The wood did arrive last night, albeit later than we expected, and we managed to get it all stacked in the garage in one and a quarter hours, which was jolly good going, considering it was dark outside :-)
I am trying hard to be positive but things seem to be unravelling around me at the moment......
