Well, this week didn't go quite how I wanted it to either. Sigh.
Mum is in the hospital. She got admitted on Wednesday which just so happened to be sister's birthday. Sister has not been able to talk to her yet but has been in touch with the doctors and such. Mum has an infection. She will probably be in the hospital until at least Tuesday. Sister has managed to get an appointment to see her for an hour on Sunday. Sister will have to take a Covid test before she goes.
I didn't say anything in my last post but sister had made the very difficult (and necessary for sister's own mental health) decision to put Mum in respite care for a couple of weeks to begin with and see how things went from there. It was from there that she was taken to the hospital. It's just been a difficult couple of weeks with lots of tears.
As for me I'm not sure quite what to do next. I keep waiting to see whether the US will be on the green list as some point, but I have also been asking a Facebook group I'm in for tips about going back and quarantining. I found a lovely small group on Facebook of people who are from Ipswich (where I'm from) who now live in the states. It's nice for support as we're all sort of in the same boat. On the plus side I have had both vaccinations. I'm really not quite sure what to do. I am keeping all options open at this point.
On the plus side, even though I feel a little guilty about it (with all that's going on in family) but we're going away camping for the holiday weekend. I hope to get out in nature, do lots of walking, relaxing and maybe even a camp fire!
Photo today - a bunny. I have seen so many of them lately. This one was one of the ones I saw on a walk the other day. There have been several in my garden too around the bird feeder. They are so cute. Very jumpy though.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. May the weather be sunny! Thanks for all the comments and support. I really do appreciate them.
