I am living in UAE and have 80 yr old mum back in England. She fell and broke her collarbone before xmas and haas been incapacitated since. Found out yesterday she has sores under her breasts which have become badly infected ( nurse said worst case she has seen) and she has been in agony for weeks. She has mixed up her medication and been taking wrong tablets for goodness knows how long. In addition she has been falling asleep whilst smoking and has burnt several nighties and dressing gowns. Nurse and doctor both agreed she needed emergency admittance to hospital so was sent there yesterday. Was kept in a and e fr several hors then sent home ( I think due to shortage of beds) district nurse coming today and care package sorted but she needs to be in hospital full time a moment. so hard when I am so far away!
