I was taken to hospital for no known reason leaving my wife, who had memory problems, which included not being able to operate the gas cooker. I was taken to hospital because my wife hit me and this was witnessed, on one occasion, by a 'carer' whom I have never seen since. I was put into a Metal Ward and the Nursing Staff couldn't see why and called me a 'gentleman'. But the Doctor was determined to find something. With the time in hospital and the lock-out that was about 18 months ago.
