My Mum................





My mum (Mae) is the most amazing woman she is pain 24/7 due to back problems and has to take very strong pain medication in order to get around, however, that doesn’t stop her watching one of her 3yr old granddaughters or her 10mth old granddaughter numerous times during the week she is also the primary care of my 14yr old nephew who has ODD & epilepsy. Not because he has bad parents, he doesn’t but because that is the way it has worked out and he is happiest when he is with his nanna and yes she does spoil him and let him get his own way often. 

Mum along with myself go and visit her mum at the nursing home every single Wednesday, mum also cares for my dad who had lung cancer in 2009 and since then has had many health problems, including memory problems. 

My parents have 5 children, 17 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Mum is there for all of us, she doesn’t seem like a 73yr old woman. I think mum is the clue that holds this family together what about the rest of my siblings what do you think…………..
