Not Around

You might've noticed already but I hardly get any free time of late. Instead I spend my hours at my Gran's house trying to give some support to my Mother. It's not a fun place to be hour after hour. The only source of entertainment being Christian 'reading materials' and E4 broadcasting a live stream of The Salon. I'm sure my brain's going to explode soon.

My Gran's started to vomit blood and stomach lining. It's like she's rotting away from the middle, which is a hideous thing to witness. The doctor came in yesterday and fitted a continuous-feed morphine line, which means that we no longer have to wake her up every few hours to administer it. I guess that's a good thing.

The morphine has killed the pain, but it's also causing my Gran to hallucinate; which involves her calling out random memories from her childhood. This can be very disconcerting when it comes wailing through the baby monitor at 2am: "Daddy, where did you bury him. Where did you bury him, Daddy..."

Right, I'm off for a shower and then I'm heading back down. Thanks for all the comments and such. I'd reply if I had the time but... well, I think you get the picture.
