Don't worry about Centre Parks,, Margaret, you can go next year. You are being looked after now, Frank can have a bit of a rest and you try to relax a bit whilst they get your oxygen problem sorted out. Have a good night. Love Lilian xxxxx

Margaret, this time tell the Dr's that getting your oxygen really figured out is what is most important; getting you home fast is NOT what is important. All the Kindest Wishes, judg69

Hi,

Sorry to read that you are not too good, I hope things improve for you soon.

I don't know whether you are going on the hospitals BIPAP machine or a portable device which you will take home with you?

If it's any help to you, I am on portable CPAP a similar machine to BIPAP and can still read before going to sleep. The only thing I can't do is talk which really pleases my husband. I look like elephant woman with my 2 meter trunk however, I wouldn't give this up for all the tea in China. It has been a life saver, I feel so much better. In fact the pain in my joints and muscles halved after a few months of therapy.

Choosing your mask is very important, there are 3 main types: full face mask, nasal mask and nasal pillows. I have nasal pillows therefore can wear my glasses without any problems. Have a look on Resmed.com for more information. Trust me, you will get used to this very quickly especially when you start to see positive results.

Hope your feeling better.

Oh I'm doing ok considering I'm literally full of gas!

I dont expect you will go home until they can sort out why your SATs keep dropping so low. Hospital is never nice but it sure would help you to get some answers,don't you think? I know lovely Frank will "connect you up" tomorrow, so until then, try and be gentle on yourself and let the Doctor's get you sorted out. Wishing you some sleep tonight, Cx

Hi there Time_2_drink - any luck with pain relief? Hopefully the ambulance medics will have given you something to make you more comfortable. Best wishes,Cx

They are pumping pure oxygen into me at the momment what is it with me hospitals and bank holidays just found out matron will have to re refer. Absolute fed up xx

Reply

The paperwork or imputting of data that Matron has to do is quite laughable....but can't criticise her because you need her on your side. It seems stupid that you just aren't on her books full stop.
