There are some pretty amazing people on 'Team Jane'.
Dr. P is one of course, always at the end of the phone if I need him, always available at his clinic even if you havn't got an appointment.
Then I have Mary my MacMillan nurse. Again, always available on the phone and if I need help urgently she swings into action instantly.
And finally my GP Dr.A. One of the lovely old fashioned GP's who does his own visits and really cares about his patients.
MacMillan nurses are experts in palliative care and pain control and within half an hour of leaving Mary a message that I was in trouble she consulted with the hospice doctor, faxed my GP and put Dr P. in the picture. She called me back and told me to double the dose of my MST. 10 minutes later Dr A. phoned to tell me there was a prescription waiting for me at the surgery.
It did the trick. I spent yesterday dozing comfortably and for the first time in days my body felt relaxed and not all tense due to the pain. I took another dose last night and slept like a baby till 2am when I was sick - almost certainly due to the fact I havn't eaten for 3 days. Then slept again till 7am and I've just forced a piece of toast down before my next dose is due.
Now I feel a bit achey, a bit woozy and a bit sicky - but SO much better than I did.
How lucky am I to have Team Jane ? They are all so dedicated and hard working and when something needs sorting they do it - instantly. No messing about or waiting. It's not just a job to them, I know they really care.
Today is another day. I've hauled myself back from the depression I was slipping into and am positive and hopeful again.
There are also other members of Team Jane. Martin, who has been simply wonderful and not complained once when I was repeatedly waking him up at night. The kids who have been really helpful fetching and carrying stuff for me. And the support and encouragement I have received from comments on here have given me a boost when I really needed it.
So to all of Team Jane - a very big Thank You !!
