It's husband's birthday today (68, blimey) and I'm cooking what he wants....he's asked for prawn cocktail, a lamb leg steak with the veggies he likes (virtually everything!), followed by cheese and biscuits. So an easy meal for me to do. We rarely buy each other presents now, but generally buy something for ourselves - that way we get exactly what we know we want. He bought himself a new pair of winter boots in the sales.
And an OMG - Sis weighed mum yesterday....she's lost 2 stones in the past 4 weeks, worryingly. She's not been eating much as she's feeling/being sick every couple of days, and has had diarrhoea pretty consistently for weeks as well. I - well, we - really hope the docs get to the bottom of all this sooner rather than later. But when all her tests keep coming back as normal, I think the doc is at a bit of a loss as to what to do next. Mum's quite weak, understandably, and is very down about it all, which is to be expected. Sis has spoken to the doc, who's asked for a urine sample to be taken in. She's also advised stopping another of mum's tablets. Mum has to go for more blood tests on Thursday. It's very hard not to worry.
I've got a big list of things to discuss with sis and brother tomorrow. I hope between us we can all come up with some good ideas to help mum. Brother was a police officer for 30 years, so he's pretty sensible.
