My mother had a hospital appointment on Tuesday, for which she has had to wait, in ever-decreasing health, for many months.
It was a mammoth task to get her to the hospital, but the short story is that she desperately needs an operation but because of her health problems, it cannot be done safely at the moment.
The operation would massively increase her quality of life and prolong her ability to continue her independence, which means so much to her.
Her medication is being drastically tweaked to try to make it possible for the operation to be done, but I am not raising my hopes. Mum is very down-hearted at this news, as am I.
Any spare prayers would be much appreciated.
