Well today the hospital sent my other half home despite Pippa from headway ringing everyone yesterday and advising against it. As far as the hospital is concerned his orthopeadic injuries have healed and they wanted him out. There is an 18 week wait to see a psychologist for assessment and 12 week lead time for any sort of outreach OT work. I had not realised things were so bad for brain damaged people there does not seem to be hardly any funding available for this. So basically just been told we have to cope with it for the next 12 weeks and we are on our own. I have no idea what to expect and have seen many differences in Ians behaviour over the past 8 weeks. Have an appointment for myself with GP tomorrow but will have to drag him along with me. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Headway for the help and advice they gave me yesterday when i reached the end of my rope with the politics of postcodes that we have fallen in the midst of. Also to say that I will definitely be doing some fund raising for this wonderful charity once things have settled down at home. Thank you so much for keeping me sane in an impossible situation.
