              Hi father in law was rushed into hospital after a collapse on Tuesday and iit is now known he has blood clots in both lungs. Hopefully the pallative care team can get him moved to hospice tomorrow as general hospital care is not enough to keep him comfortable. He is on oxygen. And blood thinning injections to keep him comfortable, I hope they've got a bed for him soon or I'm brining him home x

                    My father in law was diagnosed 6 months ago now with stage 4 eusophagal cancer, prognosis we were given was months to live, we put a care plan together within the family and we have all enjoyed his last journey, it's been hard at times and there have been many ups and downs, constant reviewing of his tablets and abilities have given him the strength and determination to live with cancer and not die from it. He sleep...
