Hey albionfan and wife,take some deep breaths think of the good times and treat the old fella with respect.
Ask the people at the home not to speak across the bed to each other the man needs help, talk outside the room ,I don't like it when nurses doctors etc talk about people as if they're not there.
They might have their eyes closed but they can sense things ,I think it is reprehensible and ignorant.
Albionfan you concentrate on the old fella talk to nurses etc outside the room,the old guy still has feelings.
Good luck mate.

Was informed by Local council that commercial waste was being cut back and to use disposable cloth when handling bins, when you think how many bin handles could be infected by one pair of hands it's good advice.

Firstly, a sincere and heartfelt thank you for the messages of support, it meant a lot to me. It was a difficult afternoon and evening for us, but more so my wife.

When we arrived at the home we were told his chest infection wasn’t responding to treatment, we were assured that it wasn’t Covid-19. Outside his room we were kitted out with PPE, how doctors and nurses cope with that alone for the hours they are on shift I really don’t know.

He didn’t recognise us at first, the PPE didn’t help. But we wrote little messages that he was able to read and he acknowledged us. During our stay he did appear to be more lucid and brightened up, which was a relief and gave us hope.

When we were leaving, the home’s manager asked to see us, she went through a list that include DNR, preferred Undertaker, religious beliefs, did we want to be contacted at anytime of the day/night  in the event of his condition worsening. All sobering and deflating, but essential and practical things, as life has to go on.

I had the phone on my bedside table last night and, to our relief, it didn’t ring. So, its one day at a time, which is what life has become for all of us of late. Stay safe and thank you again. AlbionFan

Prince Charles has tested positive for COVID-19

Yes, but how come he can get tested with "mild" symptoms when NHS staff can't get tested

Because he is over 70 and therefore classed as vulnerable.

Now nicely ensconced in his 2nd home in Scotland apparently........just saying.

Albionfan,there's nothing I can say that will help you with the next few days weeks.
I went through similar with my mom 18 months ago,she was in a home in Brownhills,trouble was she had dementia and couldn't even recognise or acknowledge me.
I hope they hurry up and find a cure for this terrifying disease it was horrible,when she eventually passed away.
You must stay strong for your wife this is a time for understanding and patience keep a cool head ,its part of life that comes to us all I feel for you as a human being and your wife,love from the liverbaggie.

You have, for some time across many different topics, always managed to display a sincerity and human kindness to your posts. When I read posts from yourself, I always imagine you as a person rather than a member.

Your PM to me last year, at my time of need was very touching and epitomises you as an individual.

Please do not feel that you cannot make posts such as the above on this forum. We are all feeling emotions in any different ways, the more people that open up and express their thoughts the better. If this forum is a relief for some members, then I am glad

Wishing you and your family the warmest best wishes. Take care Colin

Found this amusing.

Mexican protesters have shut a US southern border crossing amid fears that untested American travellers will spread coronavirus.

Residents in Sonora, south of the US state of Arizona, have promised to block traffic into Mexico for a second day after closing a checkpoint for hours on Wednesday.

They wore face masks and held signs telling Americans to "stay at home.

Trumps wall was a masterstroke.

There was a vicar on the news this evening saying that the word ‘virus’ doesn’t convey the seriousness of the infection, her suggestion was that it should be referred to as ‘plague’; it might just help to convince the idiots that are flouting the new instructions that this is a really serious illness and will cost many people their lives. Stay safe everyone.
