Wow, how I didn't think I'd be sat here writing an update a week ago!
My dad still remains in hospital, his antibiotics have finished and he tells me he didn't have any steroids today (19th October) he's been taken tablets to increase his potassium levels but again today the nurse said he doesn't need them for now.
He's 100% better than last week, his o2 has gone from 1ltr back to 0.5 tonight so fingers crossed he'll be ok.
He hasn't left the hospital bed since he's been in, apart from using the commode.
Today they've also put a airflow mattress under him because his bottom is getting red. I've asked him why they are keeping him in a few days longer and he doesn't know why. I understand that the staff are extremely busy but the longer he lies in bed the harder it will be to get him on his feet again. I hope there is nothing else going on with him.
He's also a bit forgetful repeating the same question a couple of times then realises he's all ready asked.
Thank you all for keeping in touch xx
