Sorry if I`ve not replied

Just want to say sorry to anyone who may have answered my questions recently and not received a thanks from me. Well I`ve had another sudden carting off to hospital. Finally got home but only if i agreed to have a carer in now that I`m on my own. So just twice a day someone comes to help me wash and dress and must say I couldn`t do that on my own yet.Also like to say how glad I am that I bought myself a nebuliser- it`s been a godsend. I have great difficulty clearing my lungs and once I`m not using medication in it the COPD nurse said to use saline a couple of times a day. Anyway Happy New Year to you all and thanks for sharing my sadness with me when I needed you Sheila xx

Welcome home Sheila


Hi Sheila, well every cloud has a silver lining (so they say, not convinced myself, am still owed quite a few silver linings for compensate for all the clouds!!), now you have your carer your life will hopefully continue to improve. Best wishes, Libby

Thanks Libby, They do say we`re only given as much as we can bear and that what doesn`t kill you makes you stronger. I beg to differ. What doesn`t kill you leaves you even weaker I say. But we`ve got to keep on keeping on- easier sometimes than others.I`m glad of the carer coming in twice a day to help me wash and dress. I arranged it myself though because I wasn`t prepared to languish in a hospital bed until social services got things moving. Means I`ll be paying myself but I want to be able to leave hospital when I want and just ring this firm and have them for a few days now and then. One elderly lady who already had carers had been waiting to leave hosp for two weeks just so soc services could reinstate them. Such a waste of resources. Anyway I`m looking on this week as if I`d had to pay for a holiday(which I`ll never get!) Feeling stronger every day. Regards, Sheila x

Hope things improve for you Sheila. Happy New Year to you too. xx

it is so much better to be at home you obviously went into hospital feeling very poorly, then suddenly you needed to get home, and arranged for carers.

good luck and i am sure you will improve greatly

love jan x
