Happy Easter to you all!
I have attempted this update in my head several times but couldn’t get it written down.
Let’s start with Molly, I can only tell you what I see and what my gut tells me. From the outside looking in she has improved so much, a long recovery period and the transitioning to her new home has been some journey for her. I admire and totally respect her resilience and strength she is different but amazing! I wish she could tell what to write, I wish she could communicate what she thinks and feels, I wish I truly knew if she is happy, if she feels safe, I want to know, what does she understand? Smiles, laughter and a little bit of chatter are all good signs and so reassuring!
There are times when I am reassured however mostly I think about her and wonder how she is many times throughout a day and when I lie still at night the palpitations come and I am reminded to think of something else. I constantly listen to podcasts to distract my trail of thought – my phone battery is forever flat!
I met a nurse from Edenwood today I was reminded of how they touch people’s lives In the work that they do. I think I’ll pop up with some eggs for Easter 🐣 and plan for them to visit Mollys new home soon. It will be nice for them to see how the plan I always talked about to them has came to fruition.
I also want to inform all unpaid carers that they entitled to have a Carers Assessment, this will hopefully result in you receiving a sum of funding to support you in someway positive for your well being.
Molly’s off to Boccia – get in there Molly and enjoy – onwards and upwards….. let’s start living!!
Luv C x
