At the moment I am looking after a sick neighbour along with another street resident. Our sick friend is unable to stand due to a back condition. She is in terrible pain and has no relatives able to help.
We are taking it in turns to take in food, wash her, make drinks and sit with her. She is waiting for test results.
It's such hard work and neither of us is fit; we are struggling.
We've tried ringing the old people agencies but keep getting told they need a referral from her doctor. ? The receptionist says her doctor is waiting for test results, meanwhile two unfit women, not related to her are coping best we can.

Me too. The helping neighbour has a painful arthritic condition and it's making her stressed.
I had to laugh, though, I asked our sick friend if she might like a bite to eat - her appetite is reduced - and she replied, "A drop of soup would be nice, not out of a tin !" Good job I make my own soup.

Yes the weeks are flying by JUJO.
I would like to thank you for being so kind and helpful to me recently while I have been caring for a sick neighbour. It has been tiring to say the least. Sadly, she died unexpectedly on Saturday afternoon of a heart attack. I am still trying to get my head around it. Fortunately her son was visiting her at the time.

Your support has been uplifting.
You are a rock! Bless you.
