Last week we were dealing with Mum’s fall and her broken hip being replaced. Since then she has been rehabbed but her blood sugars are erratic.
On Friday they finally sorted this out and she went back to the Care Home.
This week my niece and her boyfriend were working to figure out how she might keep her unborn baby. It wasn’t looking good. He has a long criminal record of battering partners and can’t see 3 of his kids. She has mental health problems.
She went into labour and was told not to leave the hospital.
As the baby was born by C-section the social workers went to court to apply for a safety order which they won. Yesterday the foster workers took him away.
This is very upsetting but also slightly confusing. Or more correctly the couple’s reaction is confusing. They are both posting on social media. They don’t seem miserable.
I don’t get it. Life is not normal. They have an hour a day access. I’d be climbing the wall.
My younger more techy daughter tells me this may be her way of not telling the world. Of carrying on as normal.
Maybe she’s right.
In that situation I would be very angry and I honestly wouldn’t give a stuff what people thought.
Maybe they’ll be different tomorrow. We’ll see.
