Hubby was brought home for a while yesterday by the hospital, to see if he can manage on his own at home. He made himself a cup of coffee, got on and off the bed, used the bathroom, and got out in the garden (down 3 steps) with help. They think he should have a personal alarm system for when he is at home alone, and they gave me leaflets for 4 different ones, which I have to buy. They think he will be allowed home later this week, once they have arranged his medication and had a meeting. Hurray!
