My poor Nan

I've had a nasty phone call from my Dad tonight. My Nan has had another heart attack and is in hospital. Her lungs are filled with fluid (I assume from the pneumonia she had recently) and her kidneys have failed. She currently has lost the use of her legs too.

The can't be treated for her lungs or kidneys because the medication will put too much strain on her heart.

She only has a short amount of time left.

She wants to go home, and with luck she'll be able to get enough use in her legs to be able to do that by the weekend. She'll have to have a bed set up downstairs though, the stairs will be too much effort for her.

I spoke to Brenda (one of my aunts) after speaking to dad and she relaid this to me. I'll be calling her again on Friday to see what the situation is. I should have my car back by then, so we're hoping to go over and see her at the weekend. If she's up to it. I really want to see her. But if having a ton of visitors is going to make her worse....

I'm crushed. Dad's in a state and poor Brenda sounded like her heart was breaking. Losing Nan will knock serious shock waves through the family. She's held everyone together. I know full well that once she's gone I'll never see my aunts, uncles or cousins again. I barely know them now.

Told you life was SHIT!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
