Hospice

Hospice

Everything is free. Hospital bed, oxygen machine, portable oxygen tanks to carry about, wheel chair, shower chair, walked, ah morphine finally, a nurse 2 days a week plus nurse assistant to bathe and groom me, house keeper, Buddhist chaplain, social worker, on call 24 hours for me, putting in drain and nurse will pump me 2 days a week and teach me how, I got sleep meds, all my meds arrive at my door with fed x, they are chock full of compassion and happiness so loving, I get all supplies free, latex gloves, depends, those kinds of things. I never drive to them. They come here to me for my comfort. They are a flock of angels. I am without pain, eating again, a little. I can get them here any time as I have 24/7 access to them. It's a lovely experience. My children are with me. To top it off I have all of you right here talking to me from sun up to down. Aloha

  • How lovely does it sound. Hospices are simply the best and I know someone who works in one over here in manchester. I am so happy you are more settled and are in the right place to help you especially for free!

  • Awwww i have been reading all your posts recently. ..i was on the forum last year waiting for treatment for my hep c that was starting to give me some serious problems. .Thank god i got Harvoni and have been free from hep c for 8mths now.

    You are such a brave woman and reading your posts was inspiring to say the least...i haven't been on the forum for at least 6mths ..just been catching up on all the people who gave me support and advice at a time when i needed it..

    A great bunch of people who help eachother through difficult times when they need advice or are feeling low.

    I was sad to hear your news but humbled at how you coped with such dignity also still willing to chat to others at this time..happy your getting all the support you need and have a loving family around you at this time.

    God bless you and give you strength to cope with all your having to go through and hope this time will be easier for you surrounded by your loving family Xx

  • This is what a hospice is for: keep you pain free and as comfortable as possible. To show kindness and caring. And without thinking of anything to do with finances. So pleased you are being looked after so well and your children are with you Lots of hugs n love sent your way. Aloha! Xxx

  • Can you see the sky from your room? Hope so. There is something so peaceful about watching clouds drift by. I'm so glad you are getting the care you deserve at last. Please say hello to your children from us all over here in the U.K. It must be really hard for them too but they will be relieved now that you are being cared for so well. Gentle hugs from across the pond xx ❀️️

  • I'm so glad to hear from you. You were giving me advice back in 2015 when i joined. Where has the time gone. I'm waiting for assessment in Birmingham with view to be listed for transplant, I know how lucky I am and have not spoken about it on here. If I could do anything for you I would like swap places. You are kind, sweet and honest and I feel priviliged to have been helped by you. Make the most of room service
