Tuesday 24th July
Well today was going to be the day my hubby was assessed to see if he now needs Hospital Level Care. Unfortunately, he has had a red swollen knee and swollen leg for several days and, in spite of antibiotics, it has been getting worse - cellulitis. I had asked several times whether he should be ambulanced in to the Hospital. Finally, last night I got a call from the home at about 8.30 p.m. and they ambulanced him in. I drove in and we waited for three hours and finally a lovely doctor came and looked at him. They kept him in the Emergency Dept overnight and I got home at 2 a.m.
He is now on a ward and they are keeping him in at least one more night and, hopefully, he will then be able to have his assessment - it would be good if he could go straight to the new Hospital Level Rest Home straight from the hospital - I am going to see the social worker on the ward when I go in after some lunch. I think the adrenaline is pumping around my body at a great rate at present.
Heavy mist all day and now it has got quite dark and has started to rain. Hopefully it will pass while I have some soup and ease off for me to drive to the Hospital.
