Re: D.I.D....

Ta @Determined.
She's home again. We picked her up yesterday, carefully kept masks on and windows down enough to keep fresh air circulating in the car. So far, she's OK, hope it continues that way.

Life's further complicated by my Mum being in hospital at the moment too, and being in a border town, the hospital is actually on the other side... so we're hoping and praying she'll be OK. At the moment, I'm not confident we'd get a permit to visit her.

@Smc  that is tough  not being able to visit 🙏

Re: D.I.D....

Sort of mixed feelings @Determined. Being a 400km trip, it can be a hard call as to whether we're needed when one of them is hospitalised.

One time when my Dad went into hospital, my sister arranged days off from work, we arranged someone to look after our animals and absented our Younger Daughter from school, all at short notice.

We were about 100kms along the road when we got a phonecall saying he'd improved, so he'd been sent back to the aged care home. By that point, it wasn't worth turning back, so we went up there anyway.

So on one hand, it would be good to be on hand if things went downhill with Mum. On the other hand, it sort of takes the uncertainty out of should we/shouldn't we go.
