My dear hubby Richard was hospitalised last Friday with aspiration pneumonia. He bravely has fought that off but it has left him so weak that the doctors have told me he is beyond coming home. Im sure I could have managed with a government care package but they are really hard to get even though we have been approved for one. He was transferred to the palliative care unit today for respite until a permanent bed becomes available in a local nursing home. We knew this day would come but its really hard looking at his chair knowing he wont be coming home. This site has been amazing and I will keep reading nightly about all the other brave people fighting this horrible disease. Short1
