Dawn is breaking and I have decided I’m going to take my mum out today and will be on the A46 very soon. The ‘Great Escape’ will be a short trip into the country along with the usual fix of a ’99’. I will also call in to see my brother in his Nursing Home: on CHC he’s not allowed out. I have rebooked the hotel I cancelled yesterday and will stay in Coventry overnight rather than my original plan to stay for two.
When I woke up early this morning I thought about my plan to try to get everything ship shape before I facilitate Maureen’s escape from Ashgrove on Monday. Then remembered my mum desperate to get out of her Care Home just as Maureen will be wanting to get back home ASAP. I knew if I asked Maureen what to do she would say ‘go and see your mum’. If I asked my mum the same question she would say ‘bring her home now’. I also know if I was able to ask my dad he would have said ‘look after your wife’. I realise I’m fortunate to have been raised by loving parents and to have such a thoughtful wife.
Sincere apologies to family and friends in Coventry for changing my mind once again. I will keep in touch by text throughout the day and hope to catch up with some of you!
