DIGI DESIGN CHALLENGE - FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO

I have been at my mums all day today as usual, I am a little upset once again.  My mum has her medication delivered once a week on a Thursday, she has a Dosset Box?, when I went over on Friday my brother said that they had not delivered it, he had rang the chemist and got no reply from so left a message., nothing happened.  Today he told me that her medication still had not come, so the outcome is my mum has been very agitated and hallucinating which is a cause for concern.  I contacted the pharmacy and after 6 mins waiting for them to answer I was told they would be delivered on Monday I was not happy and I know they could sense it.
I really feel that there is something wrong somewhere and unfortunately it is beginning to get to me and stress me out. 

My mum and brother have no one to look out for them except me, that is not bragging but a fact I am there for them 99% of the time and so happy to do it but my brother is not very mobile due to his legs and of course mum being 101 doesn't know what is going on.  I will move heaven and earth to make sure that they get what they need but I feel that sometimes I am banging my head against a brick wall.
Stay safe everyone

Many thanks for your comments on my previous posts and some have been asking about how my brother got on at his appointment........
Well he didn't see a doctor he saw a nurse who could not understand why the operation did not get approval, although his legs are bad she thought they were ok..........duh........he was told he would be referred to a Dermatologist at the Hospital.........who knows when that will be, until then he has to just carry on with the cream and the pain.
I will see you all later I am having a day at home hopefully creating new art for you all to see in my upcoming DT postings.
My partner has gone fishing for the day, I managed to complete all the tasks possible at my mums and I know that they will be ok until I see them tomorrow.
Hugs to all and stay safe
