Can hardly believe it but I actually have 2 nights away!!!
You may recall I planned a 2 night respite break starting today but care agency on Friday announced I needed a doctors letter to crush his morning medication.
On Monday GP responded to my letter, email and telephone message with a reassuring email that there was no need for him to write a letter authorising the crushing of my husband’s tablets as I was not concealing medication and my husband consented! Which bit of my correspondence did he not get I wondered!!
So yesterday I popped in and out of the surgery 3 times until I actually caught him, by then the tears of utter exhaustion and frustration where real no acting required - quite surprised myself and clearly him too!! This morning he sent an Email authorising the crushing of tablets whilst I am away for 2 nights!! Aarrrggghhh. Why could he have not just left the time span open ???
Sometimes everything feels like a battle. On Friday the chairlift footplate broke and on Sunday the hosp bed stopped working so in between battling with the GP have also managed to get repairs done
Calm again now ( well working on it) and on my way- phew feel like I have really worked for this break!!
