For those wondering how Karmel is faring…..
After an unexpected few days in the Royal North Shore Hospital last
December, where under advice Karmel was told not to return to Scotland
Island due to health concerns, she has been living with daughter,
Heather, since just before Xmas.
Due to poor kidney function, she has just started her first dialysis
today at Liverpool Hospital and will need regular treatment three times
per week. Hopefully, this will result in an improvement in her
health as the treatment progresses.
Karmel has been assessed as eligible for Residential Respite housing
but has been looking for something independently that is close to a
Hospital or Dialysis Unit, as well as near Heather who lives at
She feels quite strange about having left her home so abruptly!
She anticipated returning home after her specialist appointment but,
instead, was told to go immediately to RNSH Emergency! She will
not be returning to the Island and her belongings have been packed away
and stored awaiting a new home.
Once Karmel is stable and has a spring in her step, there will be a
farewell held in her honour to celebrate her life as a member of our
community for so long and give those who knew her well an opportunity
to say adieu. Keep your eyes open for a notice!!
