Life had settled down in the time since Bill came out of hospital but yesterday I knew he was not right. He was even more sleepy and so difficult to rouse. At lunchtime the carers dropped the bombshell, Bill was passing blood in his urine. Oh Shit! He is not going into hospital again phone 111 they send a lovely pair of paramedics who agree he is better off at home with me. Emergency dr. Comes and prescribes antibiotics. Try to get as much fluid in as possible.
Bedtime I have a brainwave and push my little bed up to Bills hospital bed and after adjusting the height we can sleep close together.....If he goes in the night at least I will be near him......... Wake up and it is getting light! We have slept until 7.30! I can hear Bill snoring so he is still here! As usual he has his legs on my bed and is sleeping diagonally across the bed. I need to move him to give him his meds and a drink . Manhandle Bill wearing my usual nightwear, nothing! He thinks this is great. Get more smiles and giggles than I have heard for ages. Manage to get the slide sheet under and tug him into place. More giggles as he touches my bare body. He is like a new man. Took his meds , ensure and a cup of drink and is now fast asleep. I believe in the power of love!
Love to you all. Kathie xxxxxxxx
