I don't really know if I have a question or whether I'm just looking for someone to listen, I suppose I'm hoping there's someone that's gone through the same that can offer any words of comfort. My dad has had COPD for many years and is in end stage COPD (no one has told me this but I've looked at the symptoms and he's there). He's on 24 hour oxygen, severely breathless even when resting, he has a wheelchair to get around, can't sleep and has been admitted to hospital 6 times since February. He gets chest infections regularly and they hit him for six! He's in hospital at the moment. My mother is caring for him and I can see the toll it's taking on her. I'm struggling to cope with watching my father deteriorate so badly, as are the rest of the family. We get told nothing by doctors, only that they're treating him for an infection. I've looked at prognosis and it's not good for end stage COPD but this is only from looking online. I don't know what I'm looking for from posting this but feel better having written it. Sorry if it's off topic or shouldn't have been posted because it's not a question.
