They're very unpleasant. My mother gets UTI from time to time and goes completely doo-lally. The first time it happened I thought is was dementia but thankfully, after a few days on antibiotics, she was back to normal. Hope your aunt soon recovers nanaej
I wonder whether the DofE goes doo-lally when he gets his UTIs, like merlot's mother? I would love to be a fly on the wall and hear the Queen trying to sort him out.
In all seriousness, I do hope he recovers soon; I can't believe how fond I have become of the pair of them. I seem to be going around in a post jubilee haze. This is to the great amusement of my republican family.
Well if he does, nightowl it would be something along the lines of, 'Put that there. No not there. Who are you? Where are my tweezers? I was born in Zimbabwe' (No, mother, it was Southampton.) Yes. I would also like to be a fly on the wall
I don't think he's looked particularly well for a while now. His eyes are sunken with very dark rings. I wouldn't be surprised if he's had prostate cancer for a few years and it's beginning to take it's toll on him.
Would I be sent to the Tower if i suggested it could be difficult to establish the degree of doo-lallyness in HRH? Bless 'im, I have very sympathy with spouses who get repeated infections, and hope it is not a retrograde step in his general health.
I hope you will forgive me slightly going off your thread but I didn't want to start a new one about the same thing, as happens too often!
I have very little knowledge of his life but I was so interested reading a T.V. mag, prior to a programme on TUESDAY, CHANNEL 4 9.00P.M. 'The Queen's Mother In Law'.
What a sad life he had to start with. His mother survived exile from Greece, had a mental breakdown, religeous mania.Sigmund Freud advised a Berlin clinic to 'blast her womb with x-rays' to cure her of frustrated sexual desires. The poor woman suffered schizophrenia beleiving she was having physical relationships with Jesus.
During the war she had become a nun and sold jewellery to found a religeous order in Athens for the poor. She was awarded the Righteous Among the Nations from Isreal for hiding jews from the gestapo.
Like the Royals or not as the case may be, it just be interesting to watch.
I'm looking forward to seeing the programme, POGS. I've heard tales of her wandering the corridors of Buckingham Palace smoking a woodbine The Mountbatten clan have certainly had an interesting, colourful past with a lot of tragedy as well.
