Day 19.

Keith had a difficult night, with his bile bag leaking twice and soaking the bed and him. The bag was changed for another stoma bag with out a pipe and bag hanging off it, which means it should not over fill causing the stoma bag on his drain to fall off. But it does mean they will have to empty it more often. Will be interesting how many times they will have to empty it over night, because it keeps filling up and shows no sign of slowing down. Keith has been a bit dizzy and light headed today, but that maybe due to the fact he is not eating much. He did manage cereal for breakfast and a little bit of fish for lunch. In himself he is feeling much happier.
As for his new drain, which in his notes say's It must be flushed once a day, well I was not leaving today until they flushed his drain. I had to ask 3 times throughout the day, because the drain was not working, I kept being told the nurses are very busy at the moment grrrrrr.

Good for you for watching over his care. Grrr indeed - I hate it when they say "the nurses are busy" - as if they shouldn't be busy with you!

Good to hear Keith is feeling happier. Shame you have to keep chasing people up for basic care! Hope you both have a good night sleep.
