Hi chloe,

Sorry to hear about the probs toms having in hospital, but its so much luck of the draw with care now. If he hasnt got cot sides can he have them put on or have one side of bed against a wall, then when you leave you can put them up giving him a little protection/ comfort. The accident shouldn't have happen in the first place tho', it might be worth you complaining to the sister/charge nurse or matron in charge of the ward . If they wont do anything go to the nursing officer, as i dread to think what could have happened to him poor soul. Do listen to what tom says as he knows his body and asthma better than anyone and knows when something isn't right. Also is he normally fitting, if not this needs to be investigated as this can be due to different causes and needs to addressed.

How does he feel he? is and does he feel more optimistic ? ask him his view and get him involved in his care and treatment at all stages so he feels involved and empowered.thank you for the updates its nice to hear how hes getting on.

I hope he gets well soon




hope Tom gets better soon

I was wondering if Tom is starting to get better.

Hope you all take care of yourselves.
