Never lose hope!

โ€ข28 Replies

So after what has been a very long 99 days, my dad has finally come home!๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ

I am so proud of him he has fought this dreadful covid virus, 70 days in ICU and then another 29 in a rehab ward, he is still weak and it's a long journey ahead but he is home and I am just so happy to have him back...something that at many times we didn't think would be possible.

Don't lose hope, if your loved ones are fighting, you need to stay strong and keep faith in them๐Ÿ’œโค

Finally after a month heโ€™s put on half a kilo !!! He is getting stronger physically everyday but still need to push on appetite as he hasnโ€™t got much of one ?! When the doctors tell you itโ€™s going to be a long road they are not kidding ! But Iโ€™m not whinging Iโ€™m so very very grateful that I was lucky and have him home , and very grateful to this site that has got so many of us through the dark days , Iโ€™m no longer going to say to anyone I wish them a speedy recovery , now Iโ€™m going to say how lucky we all are that have relatives back , and however long it takes enjoy the time weโ€™ve been given


Yay, never give up hope! So pleased for you, here's to your Dad's continuing recovery ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™

That is absolutely brilliant / Iโ€™m made up for you. Have a great rest of weekend. Hope you all sleep ok tonight๐Ÿ˜Š

And you are not on your own - there is help beyond discharge - there are people on this forum who have sampled some of the help and found it really beneficial but recovery & rehabilitation is exhausting ( for everyone)

Because of lockdown we moved everything that we do to virtual platforms - as we come out of lockdown, we realise that much of what we do can stay on line.

We have a regular weekly drop-in meeting, a separate relative & friends drop-in meeting weekly, 2 x exercise sessions & 2 x yoga

Please check out and share our details to any who might be helped. We are a charity of volunteers made up of expatients, relatives & NHS staff.

Wonderful news! A real pleasure to read of your Dadโ€™s return home.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

That is awesome news!

Fantastic news! ๐Ÿ˜€

All the best for your dad's continuing recovery.

Great news for you, your Dad and everyone. People on this site will be able to offer support with the rehab and recovery when and if it is wanted.

Best wishes, Pete

The most wonderful news! My husband has been home around 10 days now after 61 days ventilator during which time we went in to say goodbye, 80 days in ICU and 94 in hospital. Where there is life there is hope. X

Amazing news, I have followed your journey and so pleased to hear this xx

Ferham in reply to RockRunner

How are things now he is home ? x

RockRunner in reply to Ferham

Tough, he is incredibly weak and tired and have lots of challenges, back and for to renal clinic to see if his kidneys recover, two finger amputations on Friday (thumbs to be done in a few months), low blood pressure preventing him standing and walking to name but a few! He will get there, it will take time but he will get there xx

Yayyyyyy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ Iโ€™m sooooo thrilled for you all!!!!

Your dad is a fighter and you never lost hope and faith ๐Ÿ’–

Cheers to his speedy recovery at home ๐Ÿ’ช lots of love xxx
