Mum is still in the cancer ward, they apparently are moving her out of the side room and into the main ward now, as she's no longer passing blood and the diarrhoea has stopped. I think it'll be better for her to be in the main ward with other people, sister said mum seemed quite depressed yesterday in the side room by herself. Not that Mum's particularly sociable, she isn't really, but there'll be more activity to give her some interest. Sis is worried that Mum's not eating much - yesterday apparently all she ate was one Weetabix in the morning and a single slice of toast in the afternoon, she says she's just not hungry and doesn't feel like eating. She does have some kind of vitamin drink, she has it on prescription at home (it comes in little bottles), she has 2 or 3 a day and is also being given it in hospital. I've said that as long as she continues to have those, and drinks other fluids too (which she does), then that's something and there's not much else sis can do - she can't force feed her! I know sis is worried about it, unless she is there at mealtimes then Mum frequently doesn't eat the meals, the nurses simply don't have time to sit with all the patients and encourage them to eat. And Mum has lost a lot of weight....about 6 stones during the past year, but she was rather overweight to start with - she's certainly not now, she's like a little bird. Poor old thing 😢
Husband's out for the morning, I'm doing a bit of cooking then some cardmaking, I'll try and remember to take photos.
We don't go in for Christmas in any sort of big way, but I do like just a very few decorations....this is our Christmas tree:-
Very minimalist! And out of the way of Betty, who wouldn't be able to resist the temptation to play with one that was at her height!
There was an absolutely glorious sunrise this morning:-
