I’m not quite sure how it happened, but I disappeared for more than awhile. What can I say ? It happened.
Life has continued. Mother FD turned 90 and weeks later suffered a fall (staff negligence) that resulted in a spine fracture, a broken ankle and weeks in bed. Somehow she has recovered, though the dementia pulls her down further.
I spent the semester teaching a number of leaning support classes, which was a steep learning curve for me and for them, but I hope we all gained from it. I know I gained a deep level of exhaustion!
A new member of the Flamingo Dancer family is due in the next week or two (blue feathers this time!) and the Perth members are returning permanently to Queensland in a fortnight . I am a very blessed FD, and will be able to enjoy my three grandchildren to my heart’s content.
I hope you are still out there…let’s talk more.
