    Esmeralda, I understand that this has come as a shock to you, but let's be grateful that Nick is not against the idea. He is probably unsettled by the change of routine, and of course he is not well. He is in no way rejecting you or your care.
    I must confess something now.
    Because of the disruption we endured for a much simpler installation, I honestly would have advised you to find a nice care home for Nick to stay in for the duration.
    But when I wrote to you the work was due to start the next day, so I didn't mention it. I was very concerned as to how you might cope, but thought your home may have been bigger than ours, so Nick would have been less aware of everything. As you know, my husband spent every day at the day centre while the work went on, as the layout here would have meant he would have been in the centre of all the comings in and goings out!
    So although I know it's not what you planned, I do think it is for the best. The work can go ahead without you worrying about how it is affecting Nick, and you can get some quality sleep which you will need.
    Honestly, if I had known about the project weeks or months ago, this is what I would have suggested, Esmeralda., based on how it was for us during a less disruptive job.
    Wishing you a good night's sleep, and a speedy recovery for Nick.
    Sleepless xx

    This definitely qualifies for a massive cyber bouquet, of my choicest blooms, a bottle of whatever takes your fancy, and the biggest box of chocolate I can find. :) And several boxes of tissues! Love and strength to you sweetie. xxx

    Just to update, Nick deteriorated through the day and I called his GP out, she prescribed stronger antibiotics but didn't think he needed catheterising or hospital admission.
    Ambulance team of two came to take him to CH but they just couldn't move him. He was so rigid, couldn't be bent either at the waist or his legs. After loads of consultation it was decided they would call a 999 ambulance. There were three of them and they did lots of tests and decided they would take him to hospital.
    Eventually got to hospital at 1130 pm, and the doctor said she would admit him. put him on intravenous AB's and catheterise him. His blood pressure was skyhigh too. Eventually he fell asleep. Think he was exhausted, poor lamb. I stayed until 0300, then came home.
    Feeling a bit sad and tearful but very grateful for all your good wishes, cyber bouquets, bottles, group hugs and chocolate. Lovely to come home to. Thank you all for the love. Backatcha.

    Es I am so sorry to hear this but Nick is going to improve with treatment.These evil infections they wreak such havoc.
    What a dreadful day for you, I hope you can just relax a little and get some sleep.Then face the rest of today a little less tired.
    A bit sad and tearful is probably an understatement I suspect,love and hugs for you and hopes that Nick makes a speedy recovery.xxxxxxxxx

    Esmeralda, you must be exhausted, such an awful evening and night you have had.
    I hope you are managing to get some sleep.
    The intravenous antibiotics will act fast, and hopefully Nick will show some improvement sooner for having them.
    Thinking of you both. xx
