Ma has a history of falling. She spent several days in hospital recently with a stitched up eyebrow because of this and has fallen several times since.
She is due to go out to a Ladies' Evening tonight but is completely refusing to eat anything beforehand. She's eaten one poached egg (another scary story) and toast today so I made her a tiny sandwich - two slices of Hovis from the smallest loaf with the crusts cut off, so four inch square pieces. She says she doesn't want it, she's eaten plenty today.
I feel I should cancel her going out. Empty stomach + sherry + history of falling. Not to mention taking her tablets on an empty stomach later.
I've also just remembered that last time she went she ended up with a monster egg on her head from 'bumping into something'.
So am I wrong?
