Kevin is now in a hospital bed in our dining room, which allows him to look out into the garden when he’s not dozing. Being deaf I cannot hear alarms and buzzers at night. As this means that I have to be near by if Kevin needs anything done during the night, I sleep in a single bed next to him. This bed is then folded up and cleared away each morning before the carer comes in to wash him.
The slow-release morphine is keeping Kevin pain free at the moment. The district nurses visit weekly, and the hospice nurses phone in weekly. However, both are on call whenever we need them, at any time.
