Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

It goes from bad to worse, at least in my opinion.
When Janina came back from surgery she was told that the wound was too big to be viable for skin grafting. Well, no surprise there really. An alternative treatment programme was being drawn up.

Today, yet another plastics guy came round to see her to say that she was to be prepared for surgery for grafting. At this she panicked somewhat and said no, as she had been told the area was too large and would present complications.

I have been in tonight and logged my displeasure at the proceedings as they are upsetting her with their two changes of plan. It would really help if the doctors spoke English sufficiently to be understood correctly. Unfortunately there are many nuances in the English language for the true meanings to be lost.

They are talking now of sending her home into the care of the District Nurses who I know from previous experience will do as they think and not what the hospital has set out.

It's difficult being a patient in today's health service.

I'm lost for words. Most unlike me.
Still thinking of you both.

To be honest, even if any language barrier is not present, there are still issues. Mary has had some bad experiences recently with one hospital lying to GPs and another hospital, about her having refused a particular treatment option, and having insisted (self referred) on another course of treatment.

Bernard, again please send my best to Janina. This kind of treatment is unreasonable and wrong, the last thing she needs.

I worked in the NHS for 30 years and know the good and the bad. You could start with the chief executive to place a hold on your wife's discharge until you get satisfaction. Do not waste time with the ward manager. You are entitled to get a second opinion and to make a complaint as the system is set up for this as well. I know I am thousands of miles away and would not want to make things worse as clearly you have had a great deal on your plate to deal with and still do. What a worry.

It's all change again. This morning I had a call saying that surgery would go ahead today.
Five minutes ago, another call to say it's cancelled. I bet the air is blue in the ward now with Janina's reaction.

I'm scared to go in tonight. :shock:

A whole week pretty well wasted.

Stick with it Bernard, as the saying goes keep calm and carry on. Be forceful but polite but most all be strong for Janina.

Can't grumble too much as these cases get put back when the injured soldiers from Afghanistan arrive. I can't help feeling that we don't get much info on these injuries when you see the rate at which they are arriving at the QE Hospital. My wife is fully behind our troops (not the reasons that they are deployed) so has taken a sanguine attitude to it all. The big problem is having to starve for so long and the lack of fluids is doing her no good at all.

This is developing into a saga.

She was kept all day waiting yet again only to be told by the anaesthetist that they were not happy that her heart rate was up. (Are you surprised!)
However, she has had a heart problem due to oxygen starvation when her lung condition was mis-diagnosed so they are rightfully being cautious.

The op. is off again but they propose to do the graft under a local anaesthetic tomorrow.
I am really feeling anxious for her now, that is not going to be pleasant.

Once the locals have taken effect she won't know anything about. General anaesthetics are dangerous enough for people in good health let alone those carrying an infirmity, especially circulatory problems.
I'm sure you know this already. Just a bit of reinforcement.

Now the op is called off for at least some time because they were not happy with her heart rate still this morning.
Probably home Monday or Tuesday with regular visits back to the QE Hospital for monitoring her recovery.

She has been genuinely touched (as have I) by all your kind thoughts and prayers and hopes to catch up again with most of you at a future nano meet. But it won't be for some time I'm afraid.
