That is position i find myself in .. blood test results and uncomfortable decisions.
Could disease illness be any worse .. Well some might remember my dad had horrific time in hospital over xmas with poor care pneumonia aki and sepsis.
He come out of hospital doing well after my intervention AND things was ok we was over coming he's issues and getting out more.
Then we got results of DADs blood test AND now i face making uncomfortable decisions on how to proceed given results.
Long and short of it IS my dad as dangerously low white blood cellls and when i seen doctor they want to rule out a cancer by doing invasive test.
Am not sure my dad is up to test BUT he will be given benefit of doubt even if he don't remember.
My dads doctor thinks is cancer and if am honest am not surprised by conversation ITs just decisions i have trouble making.
Trouble is my dads quality of life and will test treatment cause him undue suffering harm given he's dementia altzemers.
He's my doctors know i don't like palliative care in anyway or form so i find myself just us getting on with life with what ever none invasive treatment is
That is not going to cause my dad any undue harm or suffering.
In my opinion dementia altzemers robbed me of enough quality time with my dad so am not going to let this now i have better understanding
Ever the optimist i am .. am just hoping it tad of Iron Deficancy
