Hi everyone, well we've had another bad start to the day! Keith's hospital bed has been moved downstairs now, I've bought a baby monitor so I can keep an eye on him, well I must have been out cold this morning and didn't hear anything and guess where I found him, flat out on the floor with a bump on his forehead and a grazed, bleeding foot! He'd got out of bed and was trying to get to his clean clothes as he was very wet. I couldn't get him up so I covered him up and waited for the carers to arrive. With a struggle we managed to get him on his feet! I'm only thankful it wasn't worse, he could have dived into the corner of the table and it would have been another hospital visit!
Keith's OT has had all this new equipment delivered, a standing hoist and a wheeled commode that won't fit over our newly fitted high rise toilet! The hoist is in the garage with all the other stuff I've had to move out of the way, large coffee table, 4ft bed from Keith's bedroom (moved so we could get the hospital bed in there!) folding shower screen that we had to take out as the carers wouldn't have been able to get to Keith if he'd fallen, I suggested they hoist him out over the top but that didn't go down too well!
Sorry for moaning all the time, I'm really fed up at the minute as Keith has deteriorated fast this pass couple of weeks, we have to have four visits from carers a day now since we got CHC, unfortunately our regular carers couldn't cover the double up in the evening so we've had to have a different company to do that and I'm not keen on one of the ladies, she's actually the owner and has got a bad attitude. I'm going to have to complain and I could do without this added stress!
At least I have something to look forward to, I'm going to meet nanonthenet again, it'll be good to have a catch up!
Love and hugs to you all.....Pat xx
