    Hopefully now he will get the help he deserves and needs and you'll get some support in future, but at what cost?!!! take care and try to rest.

    at least he is in a secure place now, and although the first few days will probably be awful, he is likely to kick up one hell of a fuss, if he's anything like Phil, but now 3 weeks on Phil is much calmer, he gets agitated, but he hasn't lashed out at anyone for a while. They think Phil may have lewy bodies, we are waiting on scan results, they say it would account for aggression and parkinson type symptoms he has.

    Thinking of you, try and rest, and heal, knowing he is safe and secure, try to get a good night sleep, you must be exhausted. xx
