this is about my dad and me
About 4 years ago i started work as auxiliary nurse in Devon. my dad was going on holiday for a month with my mum but before he went he started get a cold and became worse while he was away. he had asks his gp would he fit enuff to and "he said yes" he ended up with pneumonia and this made him give up smoking which am very proud of. on his return he went back to his gp whom just fobbed him of and he rung me to ask me a few things. i spoke to a doctor whom i was working and he told me he need an x-ray on chest which my dad told his gp "he said " if your daughter knows such get her to teat you. i didnt no what to say to my dad but he got his x-ray but no results ask he kept asking his gp. 4 years on my dad as been told he as copd but it is now at gold 4 which is very server i did tell him this over the phone but my dad is stubben like most men he didnt keep on as his doctor.
i was standing in my living yesterday and just thought that my mum would be ringing me to give me bad news about him. so before i new it i was ringing my mum which she told me that my dad is very poorly so all ive done is read up on copd as am not working in the hospital anymore due to my poor health. i was told i have fibromyalgia which is a chronic pain disease. i never used to get on with my dad as he always want to tell me how to run my life even though i am 38 years old but i think thats just dadS in general. i dont live close to my parents i live around 260 miles away but thats ok as i drive and will be dropping everything if he is not any better tomorrow. i had to write this just to give doing something even if it is 2 am it makes me feel a little better than just doing nothing am so grateful to be able to write this so people no that you have to keep on with the doctors to get good results and to be told what is wrong with them. am of to try and get some sleep cos ive got along drive but will keep you all posted on how my dad is doing.
good night all x
