The Ward doctor must have had similar thoughts to me about the dose of steroid, and by the time I arrived to visit on Wednesday had increased it to the level it had been last week. So we'll see if this makes any difference to Colin's apparent drowsiness.
In the meantime I'm trying to encourage Colin to eat and drink as much calorie laden foodstuffs as possible - however his swallow isn't good so anything taken by mouth has to be soft or liquid, and we have to time it right so that he's as awake as possible! I'm trying those high calorie drinks so see how he gets on.
Thank you to those of you who have visited Colin - it really does make a difference even though he mostly can't remember who's been in on any particular day!
