Well George has had another urine infection, started at 3 o'clock in the morning, called 111 at 5.20 to be told doctor would ring back in a couple of hours, George was sweating, I took his sugar level it was 19.5 high, he wanted to go to the loo, must have gone 50 times. Doctor rung back at 7.30, said she would come in 12.00 still no doctor, rung back to be told she would be here soon, she arrived at 12.30, checked George said he needed to go to hospital, I said I could take him, she said no will call an ambulance, should be here 1-2 hours, well guess what it came nearly 5 hours later, could not believe it. Got to the hospital another wait, took blood, blood pressure was high, pulse was high, sugar level still high, doctor changed catheter he had a litre of urine come out, then doctor said once the second drip had finished and they gave him more antibiotics we could go home, so we were back home by 10 o'clock, I was so tired and George was exhausted. Still trying to sort out the centre, that social service stopped, letters gone in to head of social services, so fingers crossed, it gave him something to get up for on Mondays and Fridays, can't believe how selfish they have been, crossroads phoned my daughter spoke to the lady, she said social services had cancelled that as well, she was not very happy either. Who are these people in charge of these services, to do that to terminally ill people, who knows how much longer George can go to centre. I have not had any time to myself for 2 weeks, feeling so stressed, not looking forward to Christmas, can't even feel a bit happy about Christmas, would just like to sleep through it. Big hugs everyone. Yvonne xxxxxx
