Beyond Words

I’m sorry but today I can’t actually speak or write anything.  I have nothing.  It has been terrible.  We are moving Mum to a private nursing home tomorrow.

    Oh Frances, I’m so sorry. I’ll take a chance and say you have a whole lot of us thinking of you, and sending virtual hugs…

    All my best wishes are with you and your family, not forgetting little Ted. He needs lots of cuddles too. ❤️

    I’m so sorry to read this, Frances. I can only begin to imagine the implications for your mum and indeed for you and your sister (and Ted, who must be missing her as much as she will be missing him). You’ll be very much in my thoughts.

    Really feeling for you, Frances. It’s such a momentous decision, but I’m sure made very carefully. Sending you much love xx

    I’m so sorry Frances. Reading between the lines, I was half expecting that this was the bittersweet reason behind your extended stay. The sword of Damocles hangs over all of us with ageing relatives, parents, and in some cases, partners.

    Thank goodness you have Floss for support, and Ted for cuddles. Thinking of you, and sending love.

    Sending you love and light. Remember all the good things in your life—the people, the animals, your Shetland home. It doesn’t change what’s happening, but it helps get you through the difficult days.

    I’m so very sorry to hear this news Frances. Praying that your Mum will do well at the nursing home and praying for you and your family to be able to deal with this news as well as possible, for her and for you. Life can be so hard, especially when it comes to those we love. Know that we are all praying for you and thinking of you during these very hard days.

    I echo all the above Frances. Must be such a difficult decision but expert help and care must be the best and right way to go. Struggling with my elderly parents now and am dreading the future. Take good care of yourself. Sending love from Cheshire.
