4 May/ Cockermouth hospital

Spent 10 days in the new Cockermouth comunity hospital. Doctors wanted to see if they could improve my mobility by changing my dose of medication. Increase of steroids to 8 mg, they were also concerned about Olga and I trying to cope without any help.They would not ley me return home until they are satisfied with conditions at home. So our front room had to become a bedroom complete with hospital bed on loan from the NHS. We also have a hoist for moving me around. Their intention is to manage my simtoms to make life as comfortable as possible. They do not advise further treatment or operation. they are afraid treatment may make things worth then they are. So for the present I will be bed fast invalid.
