And Back on the matrons Book .The District nurse came yesterday and she found out that i hadnt Been rerefered ?She rang last night to say she had contacted the ward who apologised I have since had a phone call to say I will be reassesed on 11December 😷

I am pleased they are pulling it together for you.

What another mix up Margaret! Did they let you out of the hospital to go to the breatheasy party and then you were supposed to return to the hospital but they sent you home instead?? How awful. I hope you don't have to wait too long for your visits from Matron. Don't worry about replying to your messages, we can all read your news feed. Rest as much as you need to and keep Warm! Talk soon. Love Lilian xxxxxxx

So glad you're home again and you must take things easy, and I'm sure your wonderful hubby Frank,will take excellent care of you. Its a bit of a mystery to me when someone's in hospital and the docs "suspect" bronch in your case,that they wouldn't do all the necessary tests etc before you were discharged? Its like you've been allowed home but will be forever waiting for more appointments! Sorry to criticise our NHS but it does puzzle me. Anyhow its good you are at home and dont even think of venturing out today. Its blooming cold!!! Sending you some warm hugs,Cx

Hi caz spending the day in Bed like you say its cold when not sweating lol.Do you know i am sure someone is trying to keep me Down when i was released. I was asked if anyone needed informing I said yes rapid response team and community Matron about Lunch time yesterday District nurse came on her scheduled monthly visit .I told her about matron and rapid response she looked on her laptop and it wasnt there .Just Before 6 she rang me and said she had contacted the ward who apologised and said they would rectify it ..I got a phone call from matrons team this morning to say rereferal done then about hour ago they rang and said they where coming to do assesment on the 11dec they dont make it easy do they just got to hope i dont go Back inside in the meantime hospital i mean .The Doctor has ordered a HRCT scan why didnt they do it whilst i was in to see if it is Bronch .Im pleased i got the lorazapan Because im like a big quivering jelly lol .When I got the Az I was so pleased that i was getting something to keep infections down never lasted a week .Love Margaret xxx

So pleased that you are home. I hope that those people who are supposed to help you get their act together and do the job they are supposed to do!
