Hya guys my dad has been re-admitted after my brother in law found his hunged over. When the ambulance arrived his o2 was 19. That was yesterday dinner time. Tea time he was moved from resus to the ward but remained asleep and would not responed to us. His co2 was 13 which is extremely high and nearly cost him his life. After being on the Niv mask since admission he would normally have made a significant response but seeing him today has left me fearing the worst. He's so confused, he can't tell us what he wants to and he's upset that he's not remembering things. He was in hospital 2 weeks ago and they swabbed him for mrsa but it was only yesterday they told us his result was positive in his nose and throat so he's been re-swabbed were awaiting the results. The nurse has told us his heart has now been affected they haven't done test but she said it's obvious. Every time he's gone in to hospital he's come out. I'm frightened this time we might not be as lucky.
