Even for Dad there is much to learn and absorb and remember.
The new ailments and new medication that can’t rebuild but can make things a bit better. The new carers and new caring times organised by the new social worker. The new coalition and new prime minister means trying not to be influenced by the past and make premature judgements. The wonderful new fangled television that has with it an anxiety provoking new remote. The appointment card arriving in the post brings the letter saying something about results. There are review letters for COPD, asthma, hypotension all meaning appointments. The visit from the new optician and the inevitable new specs means hiding the old ones to minimise mix-up. The feet in need of a podiatry home visit. The forthcoming day trip and knowing that assistance is required and wondering if anyone can take time out of their busy day. There’s always the short break in July if others can get holidays.
There’s too much to think about. Lie down needed.
