Oh Guys thank you so much for your messages. Even my SS has popped up just when I needed her most.
Firstly I want to say a huge Thank you to a certain person who has offered to help with taxi fares to the hospital firstly it made me cry and secondly it restored my faith in human beings.
So were are we well.
Is still in the building but only just he is hanging in there by the skin of his teeth , this has been such a Catalogue of NEGLECT it is hard to know where to start.
The catheter was fitted via the normal route so we didn't need the op that was a huge sigh of relief.
I managed to speak to Claire our wonderful oncology nurse who was baffled by Trevor's prognosis as far as she thought he had been admitted for break through pain the Abbi was temporarily suspended due to fluid on his lungs and was to be reintroduced on Tue /Wed this week when he would be probably be sent home.
I was so confused because this didn't tally with what I had been told and how unwell Trevor seemed.
Arrangements for today was both Claire and the Palliative care team would meet me on the ward. I arrived to find Trevor slumped in a chair totally zombie like unable to talk / and still with the lunch tray sitting on his bedside table food untouched . This has been the case every time I have visited .
The next thing I know Claire appears like a guardian Angel she felt his hands and feet and said Julie he has Sepsis.
She flew into action she got him straight into bed with an oxygen mask on , IV antibiotics / informed the ward she wanted obs done every 15 mins
He has been moved to a single room and his vital signs have slightly improved. They are now saying they are cautiously optimistic, he has been placed on an Amber pathway. Basically if no improvement in 48 hrs then his treatment will be withdrawn.
So I am publically naming and shaming Peterborough Hospital for the NEGLECT of Trevor .
If he dies of this it won't be the cancer / his heart that ends his life but the terrible neglect he he has had.
I told them on Sat when his face erupted and burst he needed antibiotics if they had administered them then he would not know be having Sepsis and the huge struggle that he is facing.
The infection and not the cancer has made him unwell because of this he has been unable to eat or drink that I n turn has made him dehydrated and needing a catheter plus IIV fluids.
The infection was detected on Mon but only when Claire saw him today where they instructed to act on it even though I told them on Sat it was necessary .
I also told them on Sat that he wasn't eating or drinking .
The next 24 hrs are crucial . I can't praise Trevor's oncology team highly enough they have helped him have the 4 years that he has had , THE WiZ and Claire have been outstanding .
I will be taking this further and I will not rest until I get heard . This terrible treatment is not just happening to Trevor but all over the Country people are being let down in there hour of need
At the moment I need to concentrate on Trevor he is my priority, I am so sad and upset that my wonderful man who has fought so hard over the years to know be given such shocking care . Sorry lack of care !
I have said I want him moved to oncology Ward ASAP.
