    Hi all, hope you are all well. Life is very hectic at the moment. We have been inundated with social services as Beth is officially an adult now , well without sounding mean only by her date of birth due to her needs.
    I am carerless at the moment and have been since November when the carer handed her notice in 10 days before she was due to go to Florida with us, but i am over that now. The agency keep letting us down so its all down to me with some help from the family.
    Beth has started to lose her swallowing reflex and food is getting stuck which is a big worry. She is mainly fed through a tube now but still likes to have a little to eat, sadly she refuses mashed food.
    Her mate from school passed away and we all miss him a lot. His mum is being very brave. She has lots of contact still with us all which is great but must be hard on her.
    I have a nice new Nokia N97 which i am loving but still getting use to.
    We had a wonderful 3 weeks in Orlando made extra special by a group of people and one of them is a regular on here (arkvilla). They bought Beth a beautiful Disney gift basket and a stunning chamilia bracelet.

    So thats our lives at the moment.

    Welcome back Michelle. Sorry to hear about Beth's friend. Hope they can do something to ease her problem with swallowing.

    Hiya Michelle,

    I saw about Beth's friend on the other forum, so sad, it must be hard for all of you.

    I love the photo of Beth you have put on my profile page and am so glad she had a special birhtday.

    Mairead has just put on a thread about a photo competition so maybe you can try out your new camera

    I'm useless and we just have a point & shoot and even then my hand isn't steady so I often get blurry photo's - it drives Jai mad

    Hi Michelle it's good to see you. I'm sorry to hear about Beth's friend. Is she taking it ok?

    It sounds like you've got a lot on your plate right now. do take care of yourself and stop in when you can.

    Hi Michelle, welcome back. It was great to see you (if only briefly) at the Delta lounge on the way back. Was a bit nervous to speak first of all but took the plunge and you were lovely

    It was great to see you as well hun and i am glad you said hello

    Thanks all. I am unsure what Beth understands about death. They all miss him in school and respite. They have all been together since they were 3.

    It's so good to hear from you Michelle. I've wondered how things were going for you, and when you weren't here to keep us updated, was pretty concerned that your life was too hectic for words.

    She's a beauty, your Beth. I would give nearly anything for her hair! Happy Birthday to her! (I know it's late, but explain to her that I'm old). :D

    I hope you have the time to drop in and visit with us! Would love to hear more about your holiday, as your time permits!

    Take care now and know that we are always thinking of you.
