It is 11 am Monday 2 nd February
The door bell rings.
It is a Mr W.
He hands me a large envelope of court documents.
And tells me, he is from the LA, and we must attend court tomorrow at 10.00 am.
He explains the date in the application, was for a hearing to be held in March, but it has been brought forward.
I explain, we have no support for Isabel, and my husband is working fulltime, so how can we attend.
As you know from this blog, the LA had given no inkling, that any court application would ever be made, let alone there was a hearing in March.
Why not ?
And is this not an appalling way to treat a vulnerable disabled family, that they have failed to support ?
Only 4 days ago, the Services Manager had rung, and asked how they could rebuild our trust, her only suggestion being to reinstate Fist Lady, with a new lady.
Issy is still asleep.
On Friday, I had rung the GP, apologised for my outburst, and asked him to examine Isabel again.
He came at 5.00.
Issy was up, and in a happy mood.
The GP weighed her .
She is now 9 stone 6 pounds, having gained 3 pounds.
He checked some faeces left by me, from her last bowel movement, and agrees she has no impaction.
Isabel copied me, and pulled her top up, and he inspected her stomach.
There was nothing there.
Let alone, the remnants of, ‘a red mark the size of a fist’.
On his way out he had exclaimed, making a tightly clenched fist, there is no way that a mark that size, could have disappeared since Tuesday.
I email several care agencies for support for Issy.
One, so far has got back, to say they could offer support.
I have not yet opened the wade of court documents.
I can’t face them.
This is England in 2015.
If anyone out there can help, please get in touch.
