Frank seems to have settled in to care home, the staff are very kind to him, and helped celebrate his 89th birthday. A hoist is no longer needed to get him from bed and he is now able to have showers and be "walked" to the toilet. Another bonus is he has started feeding himself and taking drinks from a normal cup (still thickened). It is still hard when i leave him, but with encouragement from the staff and the rest of the family I think he realises the situation. All going nicely???? Following an endoscopy yesterday now told there is a tumour in his bladder, could be benign, could be enlarged protate protruding, now we have to experience a biopsy general anaesthetic and a two day stay in a different hospital. All going nicely???once again lulled into a false security .
