I had a quick chat with Joyce on Saturday teatime and she had been out with Jan and her m.i.l. to the supermarket. She is still not fancying food so not eating, I told her off and said to try harder to eat something because of her diabetes so she said she would do what she could. Jan is obviously worried about her too and keeps asking her to try to eat.
I hope our Joyce will soon feel like eating as it's some time now since she started getting the problem and she needs to keep her strength up.

Will catch up with her again soon and keep you posted if she doesn't get back on here herself.

Caz, take care love, and talk to you soon as well.

I hope to talk to Joyce again soon and will tell her you are all thinking about her.

I have just been talking to Joyce, she sounds a lot better and doesn't cry now. She is going to try and eat a bit more and promised me she would try to eat some toast or something at lunchtime.
She asked me to thank you all for the thoughts and cards she has been sent.

Caz xx

I am so sorry but I forgot to let you know yesterday about Joyces daughter. Joyce said she is being cremated on Thursday (today) and her ashes scattered on the Mersay, Julie the daughter always said she wanted to go back to Liverpool, this way she is going.
Joyce is a lot better now and coming to terms with it all. She has a lady coming this afternoon to talk about Joyce having a mobility scooter, she doesn't speak English so Jan is taking the afternoon off. I dread to thin of her going round the supermarket on it but she laughed when I told her.
I am having a wetroom put in so I might not be on here much, I am being sent to the guest room while the heavy work and noise goes on.

Thanks Caz. Will be thinjking of Joyce today as her daughter is put to rest.

Hope the wet room building goes OK and does not disrupt your life too much.

I am off to London until Sunday with no internet so will check back then.


MaryinSpain Report 21 Oct 2010 09:22

Thinking of Joyce today - hope she is eating more now and feeling a little better. I can imagine what she will be like on a monility scooter - watch out here she comes.................

Thanks for the updates Caz and hope you are not too disrupted with workmen doing your wetroom. You take care.

Taje care Joyce and Jan - look after yourselves.

Love Mary xx

Thanks for the update Caz. Good news that Joyce is now able to eat a little. Hope all goes well with the mobility scooter.
Next time you speak to her, ask if she is going to get the souped up version, that can go at seventy miles an hour!

Hopefully Joyce and Jan will be able to be in Liverpool for the scattering of the ashes.

My thoughts are with her and all the family especially today, during the cremation.

Good news for Joyce, I have spoken to her tonight and the lady who came to see her gave her a smaller wheelchair and told her she is having a scooter specially made for her. Can't be bad, a custom built one, no, really her back and feet are so bad she is having to have one made to support her back and her feet as she can't feel them. I am so pleased for her, something good at last, it will be a big one so she can't go into shops with it so I won't be able to have a giggle at her knocking tins over, lol. Joyce said it only goes 8mp though, I think she would have liked to have whizzed down the canal paths with her hair flying behind her.
She sounded a lot better, I think she will be settled now Julie has been laid to rest.

Joyce got her flowers and they are beautiful, she wants me to thank all who have contributed, she is really touched by them. She has all the names on a card and read them off to me. Actually she sounds a lot better and is comforting me now, so it will take her mind off other things.

Pleased Joyce got her flowers. Hope they were nice. Haven't spoke to her for a few days but will call soon.
Great that she is getting a scooter! It will hopefully make a huge improvement in her life, specially in the summer.
