TUESDAY 8th MAY
Mother fell outside yesterday afternoon on concrete in the garden and lay there for approximately two hours calling out (she didn't have her Careline pendant on!) and couldn't get up, until very luckily a BOOTS prescription delivery man and two very kind neighbours came to her rescue and lifted her up. She called me at 4pm to tell me this. She wasn't hurt that much, but her opposite hip is so painful with her 'illness' that I had to call an emergency doctor out to her this evening. He recommended to double her pain patch that she has normally, but couldn't issue her anything else because of her illness.
Massive thanks to the neighbours and the BOOTS delivery man who assisted my mother – I don't know who they were, but thank you so much.
Mother couldn't wash herself and could hardly walk because of the pain, so I got her into bed before I left. I have just got home at 12.40pm - just had a call from Careline at 1.11am to say that she has fallen out of bed. Back I go to Holme and the ambulance has been called. Its going to be a long night.
