After all the problems over the last couple of weeks, with me not being able to get Colin out of bed to the commode, his continuous leg shaking, and pain in his shoulder, then the hoist issue, shall we have one or not, he decided that if he did not eat, he would not have to poo, and he would die quicker. Well the hospice OTs came round to see the problem with him getting out of bed, and finally could see how bad things had got, so they ordered a hoist, which was meant to come the next day, but the consultant at the hospice decided that they wanted Colin in the hospice to try him on baclofen and to see if he could cope with being hoisted, so he has been in there since Wednesday.
They are giving him baclofen, but I can’t see any difference, Colin has decided he definitely does not want to go in a hoist. So now going to use disposable bed pans as the plastic one sticks to his skin, and also use pants with pads.
I hoping he can come home later this week, I miss him so much. I go to the hospice every day and feed him his lunch, but leaving him is very hard, but least he’s eating well.
Thanks for listening and for all advise and ideas.
Love and hugs
