Home by the weekend

The consultant and 02 nurse have been to get home by the weekend whoo hoo!

Plan in to get a 2nd concentrator for home as will be on 6L resting to see how I go with ambulatory if needed that can be increased.

To do a trial for inhaled antibiotic's via the nebuliser to help with infections.

Get the Occupational therapists out to see if there is anything they can help with at home such as showering - equipment.

Get the Mcmillan nurses out to discuss what they can offer now and in the future.

Work is now out of the question! A lot to get my head round need time to think.

Just want to say thank you to you all for support, advice and just for being there owe each and everyone of you a great big thanks, a hug and I want to cry but won't because I am just thankful for being here.

Sending you all good vibes :) Val xxx

Val good you decided to stick it out in hospital as it looks like eventually you will be getting help at home you wouldn't otherwise have had. What impresses me is that you are able still to help and empathise with others on the forum who need help even when you are struggling yourself and I so wish I had this ability myself. I can sympathise alright with all the people who post but whenever I take ill I'm afraid its all me me me. Safe home xx

So pleased to hear you're going home, I always get homesick when I'm in hospital especially when husband has been to see me and then goes home.

Really pleased that you are going home & getting the support that you need. You will find that the nebulised antibiotic will reduce infections if you can tolerate it. I was on it for a year then decided to give it a rest with my respiratory nurses agreement, now only use it periodically to keep the bugs at bay :-) Hope it works for you Val.

Best wishes

Jo :-)

So pleased to see you are going home, I had lost track of how you were because my computer broke down.

I am sure you will be able to get better sleep at home, that will help a lot.
