Thank you for your answer but it doesn't give us more information than is on the guidance sheet. She is completely unable to work, and will be so for at least the next year (she only had the liver transplant a week ago). Her husband has always been the breadwinner therefore the solicitor I spoke to previously said that she couldn't see any other way around the financial requirements other than getting her on benefits, which we have now done but it seems that the ESA doesn't categorise correctly. He needs to come over here and work to be able to care for her, especially as she is now post op. Any suggestions?
