Thank you to so many asking for an update on the utterly spoilt elderly patient in TRM’s Geriatric Nursing Home Ward.
The flowers are still arriving. It is now three weeks since SWMBO broke Her ankle in an unfortunate self inflicted injury yet amazingly, somehow TRM has still survived. SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed has managed TRM for at least the last hundred years) has had to relinquish Her unbridled power and control freak status to Her unworthy laundry assistant. Inmates may have noticed this has resulted in some changes to unit servicing standards… They have been very understanding.
She is still on crutches sporting a “moon-boot” contraption so She can dictate everything from a sunny position in Her Lazy-boy rocker in front of TV. Meanwhile Her staff struggle to keep Her in fresh flowers and chocolates and soups whatever plus latest women’s gossip magazines and books, whilst striving to introduce new levels of efficiency to Her obsolete TRM routine.
That is one of the most fortunate characteristics of living in a small town like Turangi where neighbours and friends really do care for each other. TRM Inmates (who must be aware of my terrible cooking skills) have even provided meals-on-wheels to spoil Her even further. Their response has been quite remarkable really. So many thanks – you know who you are…
