Today as been grim day breathing issues mainly panic attacks and hyperventilation caused by stress.
Today my dad had phone call from he's GP re various blood test NOW given dads dementia we had phone on load speaker.
So we know whats happing but there are some decisions we cant make for him.
So with that in mind Doctor told my dad he really dose need medical attention re blood test results FIVE time's GP told my dad he as cancer and further test are needed.
Doctor told my dad he is suffering severe anemia and very low white blood cells from internal bleeding and cancer.
I asked if was hip healing or infection to be told the quite sure its not that but some bowl stomach cancer
Well that was that my breathing started going funny then i started to hyperventilate.
My dad fully understands he just forgets AND thats why phone was on load speaker SO my dad could hear and we could and inplacatiins of he's refusal to take doctors advice.
Is bad / sad really but he fully understands what refusing invasive medical treatment means.
And its sad that i understand WHY too given he's dementia and symptoms i.e swallowing issues &claustrophobic issues.
Is heart braking really BUT we just make sure he understands and stand by what ever decision he as chosen.
Understanding he can change he's mind at any time.
Its at point now dad dose not want doctor to tell him anything thats bad news worrying or upsetting.
He said he would rather not know.
I just hope am strong enough for me and him given my own issues.
