Dealing with things

Dad came out of hospital Thursday after being in for 5 days with high co2, it's been a roller coaster of weeks after what seemed like a "normal" 3 months he's been admitted twice in the past month. Exactly what happened 3 months ago. This time there was talk of what happens when the bipap machine no longer removes the co2 i.e. Ventilation or not. He choose not, but it got me worried that I thought we was approaching that stage. Thankfully for the first time since October we have had a visit from the community respitory nurse! What a difference speaking to her, and having the knowledge that they are going to be coming at least once a week to check on dad. It's crazy how life turns and instead of dad looking out and after me I'm doing the looking after him ( even though I'm 28) lol. I understand things aren't going to get easier but knowing that I'm doing the best I possibly can is all I can do.

Love and best wishes xx
