My husband was in hospital due to awful right side pain, turned out the sclc has spread to liver & tummy nodes. His pain relief was under control and he was waiting for chemo to start again. On Wednesday 15th March a student nurse took his temperature, the thermometre had a broken part on the front of it, so his temperature read low, instead of getting a replacement and taking his temperature again this is what happen. In came the palliative nurse to my husband side room, she told us that he wouldn't be starting chemo due to the fact that his body was shutting down. Of course we were both extremely upset, at the time my husband was sitting in chair looking shocked. I left room as I didn't want my husband to see my tears. Palliative nurse took me to a side room, she told me my husband had 3 days to live and if family and friends want to visit they would have to do it today or asap. So I contacted friends and some of my husbands family, as my family live to far away. I just broke down. After pulling myself together I returned to my husband and he said what did she tell you, so I told him what she had said. Bless him, he said I'm not dying , why didn't they retake my temperature again, I did ask but it went on deaf ears, Palliative nurse had told everyone my husband was dying. Our friends & family came to see my husband , they all said he looks so well, as my husband was sitting in chair chatting away. They found me a lounger to sleep on as they said I could stay night as he will be deteriorating fast during the night. Well during night my husband was walking to and fro from toilet several times, my husband complained to the night Sister that the thermometre was faulty as it gave incorrect reading. We both couldn't sleep. The next day in comes Palliative nurse, she was waving her arms about saying, yeah I knew you would make it. Well we just looked at each other, to shocked to say anything. I have NO FAITH in her now. She never said sorry for putting us through unnecessary worry & stress plus our family & friends to. When oncologist walked in he ask my husband how he felt today, he said well after being told by Sarah (palliative nurse) that I had 3 days to live yesterday, he said I feel really well , at that point she walked out of room. We told him what happened then, he said he will look into it, as she should never of said that to us. My husband has had his first dose of chemo that day and released from hospital to. For a few days I was in shock, Just couldn't stop shaking. I know my husband may not have long maybe 6 months. I just pray we don't see her again. I don't know who to believe anymore.
