Elizabeth has been discharged from hospital into an unfinished flat not quite up and ready. I was trying to get this ready and put carpets down and had furniture and possessions delivered. I bought a cooker and I bought a sofa bed but still need to get a fridge freezeer and washing machine. I am pleased I have just finally managed to sort out the hot water in the flat and now Elizabeth has this facility.
Tonight I am upset as I took Fluffy the cat to visit Elizabeth in her new home – a one bedroom council flat which is situated nearby.
Elizabeth requested I bring Fluffy the cat to see her but unfortunately she opened the door to the cupboard under the sink and Fluffy has disappeared.
I have phoned various people including Enfield Council out of hours repairs as|I hoped they could arrange to rip the furniture out but the Council do not see this to be their responsibility. I can only hope that Fluffy the cat will be able to come out from his hiding space in time. I am going to call out the RSPCA tomorrow to see if they can help but they have advised for me to put food down and water which I have done inside the cupboard.
Earlier Elizabeth had called 111 regarding pain to her back and ambulance had been called out by 111 and Elizabeth got distressed at the amount of time I was talking to the ambulance paramedic. Fluffy the cat has taken refuge I hope under the cupboard and hope he comes out on his own accord.
Today I have been out today to celebrate as it is my Birthday with Elizabeth’s sister. The things I can celebrate is that Elizabeth is no longer on a CTO or any kind of section. It is pointless putting Elizabeth on a CTO or section as she kept going missing on both. At long last Elizabeth has her own council flat. At least she will not be going missing all the time as previously.
I have been out today with my other daughter for afternoon tea at the Ambassadors Hotel in Bloosmberry. I have further been out with her to Alchemis in Old Street for some fabulous cocktails . Now I feel my day has been spoiled with Fluffy the cat going missing and can only hope and pray he will be found safe and well.
I have told Elizabeth to keep the door open of her sink unit. I have put food and drink down for Fluffy. This loyal caring and compassionate cat has been part of our lives for quite sometime. He has calmed Elizabeth when she was in hospital and allowed home and became distressed and now he has gone missing and I am really worried.
I want to get someone to rip out the furniture tomorrow but I am worried how far the cat could have been trapped and hope that he is in her flat and not elsewhere. I hope he is just underneath the sink unit. I must try to sort this out and I now wish I had not brought him.
There seems to be one drama after another in my life and this is one I could do without.
There seems to be no help in the community in respect of Elizabeth. No-one responds to emails. No-one informs what is going on if anything. You are treated like nothing as a carer but for the first time I do not have to fight a section and feel happier about this. I was bracing myself thinking I would end up yet again in court as a Litigant in Person with the team trying to displace me as the Nearest Relative but I think they have finally realised that neither section or CTO worked for Elizabeth who kept going missing time and time again.
Tomorrow I will not be celebrating. Tomorrow all I hope for is good news that Fluffy is found to be safe and well.
