Thank you for all the support. Dad was being a bit previous. Just because he walked down the corridor with the support of the physio doesn't mean he can come home yet. Assessment will be made. No stairs to negotiate as 3 bedrooms and bathroom and separate toilet downstairs. (fourth bed upstairs as modification) He tried it on with a different doctor"when can I drive", only to get slapped down as two cardio doctors have already told him he is not allowed , and documented this so he is not insured. However I suspect this wont stop him, so Mum has decided to sell the frontera, and scrap the caravan. I dont want him appearing on the news, going the wrong way up the M1. My brother has already ordered a walk in shower tray and new toilet and sink , to take out bath and turn bathroom into wet room, so it is easier. That will be done this weekend. I got the nurses a large box of biscuits, given today, and a tin of heroes for when he comes home. The nurses on his ward go above and beyond, although the fact I went to complain about a and e treatment might have some impact on that. Todays nurse was standing over him every hour,making sure he drinks. Hes also making sure he eats properly.
Whether we can get him to do this when he comes home is another thing.
The confusion seems to have abated as soon as his blood pressure and hydration are back to normal. He's now leader of the escape committee!!!
