A brief update from the lull before… well, whatever comes next.
My Mum is due home today but the process has been difficult. One day I hope to write about it and I’d do that now but I’ve got so much to do. Both my sister and myself are worried because we don’t know what we’re facing. That’s largely down to COVID and a system that hasn’t made it possible to even keep an eye on our Mum.
Until we know where we are, our minds are filled with imagined narratives of where we’re about to go. Partly we’ve been wanting her home so we can get on with our lives, however much they might be impacted by the reality of the situation. The agonising every day for weeks over the things we could only imagine has been mentally exhausting.
