Hi Friends. Mum is in hospital as she has had really bad problems with her mind. She is in "older persons mental health unit". Totally ridiculous to think that only 18 years ago she was still modelling and had a lot of living to do.She's not even 70! She had an operation for a twisted bowel 5 years ago and has never been the same since. I think she had some sort of stroke from the anaesthetic, though no one has ever tested her yet. Shes having tests on her brain on Monday. Mum has changed so much, she has become very old very quick. Ive been in hospital too and I really miss her, has anyone else had this happen. I just want my mum back to how she used to be. I am now looking after her very loved dog "Mikey" who is also sad, I think he had been crying just now as I sat with him on my lounge and pat his little head and I saw tears in his eyes. He has been at mums house on his own with my brother and mum's neighbours popping in to feed him but he was lonely. I will cheer him up with lots of fun. I wish i could do more for mum but she is so negative and down and its hard to get through to her. Ill just keep praying for her to recover, i guess thats all I can do. I only have 1 brother who lives near mum. She is only 1/2 an hour away. Just had to tell someone.
