Mum, who lives on her own, has an alarm device that she can use to call for help.
Sitting having a cup of tea yesterday afternoon I got a call from the alarm company saying that her alarm had activated so I should check.
Having spoken to her within the last hour because she had been visited by the 'Fast Response Team' after a doctor's visit, I naturally assumed that it was connected with that visit but kept trying to contact her as well.
We went to see her this morning because she needed to be x-rayed after a fall and whilst we were waiting I mentioned that if she is going to activate the alarm she should, if possible, be able to take a phone call.
The alarm looks like a watch but mum refuses to wear it as a watch and pins it to her jumper (don't ask) but, in this instance, had put the jumper in the washing machine whereupon the alarm was continually activated (never mind being rendered useless) until she remembered what she'd done with it.
She seemed to think that it was funny that she had created total mayhem. So far so bad.
Anyway, I'm sitting waiting at Harrogate General Hospital for her to be x-rayed and they have a TV which gives you lots of information about the hospital, the x-ray department and other
One interesting fact that I picked up in my boredom is that the human body has 206 bones and more than half of that number is either in your hands or your feet.
