Sigh

Mum has had quite a nasty accident  when washing her hair today.

She now has a gash on her forehead, but more worrying, she has completely stripped off a large part of the tissue-paper thin skin on her arm . She refused to go to hospital, despite my pleading, so I phoned our wonderful doctor who visited her at home.

He isn't too worried about Mum's head, as the cut will heal on its own, but he is very concerned about her arm. The visiting nurse has been called out and has dressed her arm with specialist materials, which need to be redone several times a week, so she will visit Mum at home to do this.

The really nasty news is that it is likely to take months for this injury to heal and new skin to grow back, so Mum will be in additional pain for quite a long time............
