I just want to give a big thank you to all of you who write in these columns.
I've just been through a bad time with my husband in hospital and because he wanted to walk out of the hospital, (and actually tried. He had been put in a noisy general ward where 3 out of 6 patients in the ward had mental problems) I was allowed to visit him at any time I liked, and to stay the night if I wished. So I sat beside him through most nights, went home at 7a.m. to get clean clothes, and returned to the hospital later in the morning. My email to you never got written, but I knew you were here and it really kept me going. I kept imagining what I would write in an email to you. Thank you!
So whats the good news? My husband is home and that huge appetite that had made me put on over a stone and a half in weight has disappeared! I have lost half a stone and have a very small appetite and am now on 6mg of prednisolone. Strange way to lose weight!
