Topic: first day back at work
its been quite a hard day being back at work being away from my parents, whilst Ive been with them 3 weeks- 2 weeks then 1 week back at work and then another week home with them, it feels like ive been back at home for ages and whilst its been stressful, it has been so lovely to be with them, we did have some good laughs all together.
my mum texted me this morning saying she has had very loose stools-3times in the morning along with very pale coloured stools all weekend , so her stools have been going on like this for nearly a week.
mum was called in to the GP and they did a blood test and said that the results from the GP should come back tomorrow to assess the level of bilirubin. So I am relieved that this wil be monitored closely now.
Mums request for further tests has been made, I got the hospitals mixed up, she is being referred to Aintree hospital- apparently it is the northwestern hepatobiliary centre, and is a world renowned centre, mum should be in fantastic hands.
I have just found it hard being an only child, being very close to my parents all my life and finding the long distance hard and finding it hard to get back into the swing of work again, particularly because I am a hospital social worker- a lot of my cases are dealing with palliative patients and whilst I don't break down crying and can detach myself in a way to do the job and do it well, its still hard going -more so now when I think of my own mum.
