It's been a while since I posted about this. Since I retired and hubs is getting constant care and food and drink he is much improved. However he still hasn't been out anywhere (except the garden) since November and his motability car has been returned - a very big decision for him to make. He still sleeps 18 hours a day and I have noticed recently a decline in his memory which he is adamant isn't happening. It got much worse before he was admitted to hospital for blood transfusions and I will ask the doc for another blood test to check on this again. He is reluctant to do things and he has panic attacks. Hospital bed is still in place and district nurse continues to visit once a week plus doctor once a month. If I didn't feed him, remind him to take his tablets, make his food (he does make his own cup of tea!), monitor his everyday needs he wouldn't be here. I think that is why he went downhill so fast when I went back to work after my shoulder disaster. It's hard and I do get frustrated - especially when he says 'I'll empty the dishwasher' and he takes 10 steps and then has to sit down. So, he'll be here a little while longer I think but he has good days and bad days and really bad days when he doesn't get out of bed at all. He doesn't get dressed very often now - it tires him out and I struggle to make him have a shower and shave. The shower panics him. Thanks for reading.
