As many of you will be aware, here at Jammy Toast our Granny is getting more and more erratic in her behaviour these days. She gets more and more forgetful and befuddled in her actions as the days and weeks go by. We know it is her age but it is getting to be a big concern, as she gets more confused and keeps getting things wrong. A typical recent example was when she had just put the milk bottles out. She could not find the front door key anywhere but it was discovered the next morning by the milkman – she had put the key out with the milk. This is just a recent example, there are many more.
This week Eddie and I visited our local Health Clinic for a Well-Bear Check-Up. Eddie hasn’t been feeling himself over the past few weeks and we both thought a MOT was in order. So we took ourselves off to see a professional Bear Medic. We had a little chat with the nurse on the way in and she took down his vitals; weight, height and blood pressure. These were all fine. The nurse then started to ask a few rather probing questions, Eddie found these a little embarrassing and they were not to his liking. He gave the nurse a very hard stare at one point but she explained that asking such questions about his bowel movements were essential to try and ensure he was fit and well.
