Chest infection has consolidated on one side - so six hours in Medical Assessment Unit to midnight last night and now on intravenous antibiotics. As usual, he emerged from hospital significantly worse than he went in, as he had been stuck in his chair for six hours and the lack of movement had made his chest worse. Unable to toilet him there - no appropriate slings etc., no bed and IV drip took two and a half hours and had to be held in place by us all the time. Asthma deteriorated significantly with stress/conditions, though not fitting too badly - yet. We go back there twice a day for rest of IV for rest of week - joy!
Hospitals don't work for people with disabilities. They're geared up for 'normal' people who are ill and can't cope with disability.
Oh, and after three days without support, still no prospect of a replacement nurse for day care. Don't get ill if you're disabled - and don't get a life either.
