Overdue update

My husband hasn't been at all well. He became ill on boxing day and ended up in hospital. Got home after a few days but a week later had to get the out of hours doctors again and then a wait of four and a half hours for an ambulance. His breathing was very bad probably from a copd flare up. He's now on new inhalers. Also on morphine for pain from a cracked vertebrae.

His radiotherapy has been delayed and his gastroscopy.

It's been a tough time for both of us.

I am sorry, this is happening sadly not only does the disease cause problems the weather does not help... I hope the team of Drs involved sort the cause of your husband's breathing out, then hopefully he will be able to get his investigations and treatments underway.

Please keep strong, these hurdles are sadly here to test our strength... you are stronger and you can ( as we have to) help your husband through this... remember god never places a burden greater than you can bare...

πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ my prayers are with you..

You are the strength that your husband needs right now.πŸ‹οΈ


Thanks for your kind words. God feels very far away and uninteresting in me.

Hello dismal,

I am very sorry to hear that your husband has not been well, hopefully the new inhalers will help control the symptoms of his COPD and he will be able to start treatment again.
