I am now having flashbacks to the day i went in to a Covid ward and said goodbye to my partner. Ever since this new variant I am unable to sleep. My mum has leukaemia and I work in a primary School I am terrified I will get it and pass it on to her. But it is okay as Boris says Schools need to stay open and we are invincible. We have Covid in our school this week already.
So sorry for your loss. Its scary the new variant of covid. I too loss mu partner to covid in January. Would you be able to not see your mum until everyone has thus next booster jab?
Boris don’t look like he’s bothered he’s too worried about the affect on the economy. We should be in lockdown from today, look what happened last Christmas, the NHS won’t cope, my partner had to sit in the ambulance for one and a half hours until he got a bed and then he had to make his own bed on the ward I wonder if they turned off his ventilator too soon because they needed his bed. Its scary covid is here for a long time I feel. It’s terrible people cannot even receive treatment because of the backlog it’s a worrying time.
My mum lives on her own and we made a pact when I lost my partner in April 2020 that we would be each others support bubble. I go home change out of my work clothes shoes and coat also then I visit her. I have no idea if he knew he was going die as he had Dementia and Parkinson’s. Sorry for your loss too. My man had a funeral with only six people too. It was restricted badly at that time.
I lost my partner to covid and also had it to so I couldn’t see her. She phoned me from the ward and told me to carry on with life. She was near the end but her thoughts were with me.
Feel I let her down, don’t know how I will go on.
You will find a way to honour her you must carry on as she wished you to. This is my second birthday without my man we never did Christmas presents for each other but we did for our birthdays and then bought random presents for each other during the year. I will miss this so much. Nothing has to be perfect I don’t decorate for Christmas now it is all about the family and a nice meal and spending time together. Christmas Eve will never be the same again for me.
My husband was misdiagnosed with long Covid in March 21 after having Covid from 31/12/20. He even had a call from the nurse at the GP on 7/1/21 and informed her that although he had tested positive he was feeling tired and had loss of smell and taste. In March he contacted the doctor and said he had chest and right side abdominal pains. The doctor did a blood test and a few weeks later Gary called for the results, he was told by the receptionist that the doctor had stated he had long Covid and just to get on with it. He returned a further 5 times to the doctors and eventually after the last attendance on 7/6/21 a non urgent camera referral was made some 8 days later. At the end of June when I discovered that it had been a non urgent referral; I made him go to A and E. PCR’s and further delays resulted in not finding out until 13/8 that my soulmate had cancer, albeit it operable. Further delays due to Covid restrictions resulted in my darling husband being declared palliative on 13/10 and passed on 8/11. Covid has a lot to answer to, if it’s not the virus , it’s the damage that it causes to the likes of my Gary being misdiagnosed, the delays and the withdrawal of urgent treatment. I can’t even blame the issue associated with doctors not seeing patients as his doctor saw him on all 6 occasions but failed him , along with the NHS. I can’t comprehend what has happened. He was an extremely fit 58 year old
I am so sorry for your loss Sharon this lack of diagnosis has happened to my cousins husband too. He has bone cancer but when he was first ill it was skin cancer and he could have been saved. The hospital even put a dressing on it several times but he was not given a scan. When it got worse it was discovered that he had been suffering with cancer now he is having radiotherapy but it will only give him a few more months. He was missed because of the hospital being full of covid patients. This was in one of Wales best hospitals too. I wish you all the best for next year. Debbie.
