Well, Hazel, thankfully I'm not yet at this stage with mum. But you have responded to my problems, so I'm responding to yours, and I truly hope that things get sorted soon. I can't offer any help except
Thank you so much everyone for the support, much needed. John is no better today. He's been prescribed antibiotics again, but hasn't got them yet, they should be delivered this afternoon.
They've given him a new, electronically-adjustable bed. Very beautiful, much more attractive then the hospital ones, and so much easier to manoeuvre him. But I guess I now have to accept that he's not going to get his mobility back.
I knew anyway, but admitting it is another matter.
