Going home hopefully Thursday

Ive been told that providing my oxygen has been installed on Thursday in my house I can finally go home

My medication has all been sorted along with my discharge papers

Obviously if its not been installed i cant go home

Because of my oxygen I have to go home by ambulance & not by car with mum & dad

Once mum has phoned me to tell me its been installed then I have to inform the ward sister & get the relevant people to book an ambulance (GOD THAT LL BE A LONG WAIT GIVEN THEIR POOR REPUTATION FOR THE LENGTH IF TIME WAIT)

So keeping an open mind

what’s important here is that you have a likely discharge date. And yes they will want to be certain you are safe to go home, hence needing to wait until oxygen sorted at home (Thursday is actually tomorrow!) and need to be certain you get home safely ie by ambulance. This is all brand new so it is important that things are sorted correctly. Once everything is in place you will be able to go out and about with family again and not reliant on hospital transport.

Hope all goes as planned tomorrow.
