Can't believe that it's February already. I was hoping 2021 was going to be better, but it's off to a horrible, bumpy start.
Thanks for all the kind thoughts and prayers for Mum. She did come home from the hospital on Friday but she's not doing so good. She can't get around much and is struggling to eat and drink. My sister has been staying with her and I am so thankful for that but it is really trying on her. On Sunday she was so worried she called the out-of-hours service and a doctor came to check mum out. They said she is suffering from Long Covid. I think that is where the symptoms linger and can cause additional problems. He did give her medication to help with a couple of issues. I won't go into all her medical details, but please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She is struggling. She's fighting but it's taking a lot out of her. I did manage to talk to her once, but she had trouble talking though once or twice her sense of humour popped through. I wish I could get on a plane and go to her side, not just to help her but help my sister too. I hate this. I hate Covid. I get so angry when I see people denying it exists or go on about how it's not serious. Ag. Deep breath. I can't control that. I just want to be able to chat with Mum again or see her smile. How things can change within just a couple of weeks!
Photo today - when my friend and I were out walking the other day we say a really dedicated photographer. It was probably about -5c/22F early in the morning and he was huddled just inside this blanket, on the ground, in the snow waiting to get a photograph of the beaver!
