Poppy that was so moving, thank you.
My children are son (26),Daughter(22 last week ) and my youngest son who is 13. My daughter is my rock, she takes me out when she can but working full time it’s difficult. I would love to do more with my eldest but as I need help to go toilet I don’t, it’s embarrassing that Laura has to .
I don’t go out very often, in fact the last time was 8th Feb to go and see the MS nurse .so going somewhere to reflect is difficult
My sister died March 6th , she went in hospital Feb 13 with Hypomagnesemia , was in intensive care until Feb 21st when she was moved to a side room. This was the last time I saw her, she was not eating ,(she coudnt understand why she had to eat) although talking she was coming out with ever so weird stuff like there had been an orgy on the ICU and she had seen a murder, in fact the Dr had asked my niece about her mental health normally which she had told him she was normally of sound mind .
She was moved onto the ward monday night/ Tuesday morning 27/28. Still not eating. Had all the drips and stuff out. Got a text from my niece Tuesday dinnertime saying that they were sending her home, she hadn’t been out of bed or anything since she went in! Her blood sugar went high so kept her in for the night (she was diabetic ).
Got a text the next day that she was home, she wasn’t on all her meds so the gp started her on them the next day, this was Thursday 2nd. My niece lived 40 odd miles away so it was very difficult for her to care for my sister. She would go twice a day ,last being to put her bed for the night. She found her dead Monday morning. She should never have been sent home, we just can’t understand it!
