We had a busy Sunday: went to the country fair and returned to my home to do some gardening ( Yes Betty was weeding, sitting on the bench and sort of bent double from the waist). Betty reported she was not in a good place on Monday. Aches and Pains and unable to move. " I have never felt as bad as this" she said. The lovely Dr came and checked for Urinary Tract infection - no sign. Chest infection - no sign. Rest and paracetamol were suggested. My sister telephoned from Canada and it was clear that Betty was not in good shape.So often the complaints are about minor things. I was surprised to find Betty was not at all well on Tuesday evening. I stayed until she went to bed at 10, relieved there are wardens on call all day and night.
Tuesday, no improvement. The Dr and I spoke on the phone and he agreed he would see her on Wednesday. He has just called with an update. It seems it is the Heart valve - so we are to see a consultant. Betty feeling brighter. The aches and pains have gone. Lunch was delivered by the wardens. The Dr will call on her next week. I will be back this evening to visit. Relief she was able to rest at home. Hospital and Betty are not a good mix - and you have to pay a fortune for the parking! Fingers crossed we have turned the corner. She said today she told the Dr she wants to see all the grandsons reach 21......5 years to go then!
