Monday 26/10/09 ..2030hrs. Just come from hospital. Jane never made it into the hospice today, some problem with a piece of equipment for the traction.. ie. the hospice haven't got one and the hospital refused (initially) to lend them one... People have now come to their senses and she will be taking the one she's got now with her.. as long as she brings it back.. I know.., Jane was at her wits end and I was beginning to feel the strain.
Jane is still in a lot of pain, MST's and oramorph still on the agenda.. the morphine pump has now been dispensed with as when she asleep there was no one to press the pump. When they change her traction or sheets she needs gas and air as well... good old gas and air. This evening I took her in a double chocolate chip chocolate muffin, cashew nuts, tonic water and bags of aero chocolate balls and got the biggest smile of the evening... it was good to see her smile again.
Fingers crossed we get to the hospice tomorrow as we found out this evening, most of the hospital nursing staff didn't realise she has cancer...
