Many of you will know I have posted blogs about us not being able to get Attendance Allowance for my husband because they say he is not ill enough.
I wrote to our local MP and have received a reply (within 3 days), they say they are looking into it for me.
I sent her details (thread through the needle) detailing everything that had happened since his first hospital admission for pneumonia in February). So I will keep you informed.
Does anyone on this site have oxygen at home, because my husbands sats drop to 78 when they take him off oxygen in the hospital and ask him to walk about, which he can't do.
The specialist says that when the pneumonia clears he can go home but does not need oxygen prescribing. If his sats are only 88 when he is at his best sat down (no pneumonia) but drop to 79 at his best when he tries to walk I would have thought oxygen would have helped him tremendously to get from one room to another.
They have told him that his lungs have deteriorated again so wouldn't oxygen prevent this happening?
I would like your comments please.
