Another hospital visit today, well we go at least every other day & sometimes daily. Today I visited PALS, I have previously phoned them, I have enumerated my concerns & things have improved considerably.
MIL is now on hourly pain relief, staff are checking on her more frequently & her buzzer is now within reach instead of behind her head.
FIL is no longer speaking to us, we had a phone call from his neighbour complaining about our unkindness to him. He's told the neighbours that we drive past the end of his road & never offer him a lift to hospital!
I explained that actually we drive past his motorway junction & it is a 45 minute diversion to collect him, and we offer to collect him every bloody time & most times he refuses, often rudely.
Still no hospice bed for MIL, but I phone daily to check on the bed situation.
Every time I sit down I fall asleep & my hair is still falling out.
