    Thanks Joe O’H

    thats really helpfull info regarding the O2 levels .
    I think we are realising that if the GP says when your in the hospital it is the hospital’s responsibility to ensure things are in place so you are safe when you are discharged then the hospital was wrong letting mum leave a week ago without oxygen assessment carried out.
    hopefully they will perform better this time round .
    Mum is definitely in hospital til at least Monday so we can assess the situation again then .

    Hi David

    thanks so much for taking the time to reply.

    Its amazing how so many people suffering from this terrible disease are so prepared to give their time despite there own sufferings to help out .
    Today we have had the doctors surgery say speak to the hospital. We can only hope that the hospital will come through for mum.
    I will look into the nearest centre of excellence .
    thanks again

    Thanks Ben

    Mum is now stable in hospital and is in overnight . She has responded well to the oxygen and is also getting antibiotics for a potential infection. My sister has gone home for a breather and my other sister and I will contact her ward and the gp to press harder to ensure she isn’t discharged without it.

    It actually feels like tonight we can take a breather as for the first time in ages she is stable.

    Ben are you in the Uk ?
    I know there is a difference between what is available on the NHS to patients and what may be available privately in The states .
    We are happy to purchase things that will make her more comfortable though if the need arises .

    Thanks for all the reply’s

    mum got seen by a paramedic this morning via the gp and was immediately given oxygen. Her levels were down to 75% (I don’t actually know if that is dangerously low or not )

    She was then taken to hospital where she still is at the moment . The paramedic says she should have oxygen at home but I checked with GP surgery and nothing has been actioned yet .

    We are worried that she will be discharged again with still no oxygen at home .
