Mom, aged 91, had a fall a couple of weeks ago. She broke her wrist and fractured her pelvis.
Because of the COVID 19 situation, she was taken to a hospital far away from where she lives and is now in rehab.
I live a long, long way away now and getting in touch with her has been a nightmare.
In the end, the Occy Health lady who has Mom in her care let me speak to Mom by calling me on her own mobile phone. This would not be a cheap call.
She did it as a favour to me and for Mom. It has put my mind at rest and helped Mom calm down and get on with getting better.
How lovely of this young lady to help me like this.
It was only a small thing but meant a huge amount to me.
