As many of you know we have crashed as my mum was taken into hospital on Tuesday (out of the blue) had emergency major surgery and is obviously now very unwell with a long road to recovery
I'm now in the heartbreaking process of placing my dad into a nursing home
Don't make the mistakes we made!
Don't think you can do everything and don't try!
Get help in now! Organise it! Don't delay!
Do whatever you have to do to get that help!
Get your Psp patient into the hospice initially for respite for a minimum of one week if you can or find a nursing home for respite
Explain to your patients that respite is needed to avoid what's happened to us!
Don't take no for an answer as we did with dad when we could have got him into the hospice a year ago, my dad refused!
I don't wish what's happened to us on any of you!!
There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind this has happened to my mum because of Psp!! I don't want it to happen to me either!!
So I'm literally begging each and everyone of you that hasn't had respite to do it now! Don't delay! If we had if done it and I'd listened properly to the likes of Heady we wouldn't be in this really awful situation!! The worst situation I have found myself in since my dad became ill is now and I can tell you it's literally killing me inside!
I love my dad dearly and my mum well she's my friend, so you get me now? Do you? If you do, and this helps at least one of you to do this I will feel that at least I've saved one of you!!
