As you know, dad has been very ill since going into hopsital Monday morning, he hasn't been eating, drinking or sleeping etc and has been in a bad way. When I saw dad yesterday, he was so clammy and flushed and not comfortable at all. I gave him bed bath and helped freshen him up and change his pjs, he looked heaps better and felt better too, if only a little.
He asked me to arrange with his bank to carry out transactions for him and said for me to have his car as he probably wouldn't drive again. I had to hold back my tears, but told him lets just wait and see.
Woke up this morning, full of a cold, mam too funnily enough so we couldnt go and see him today. So gutted. So mam arranged for his brother to go this afternoon and my brother this evening. I rang him earlier and I got my dad back-again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He sounds terrific. He was sooooo happy I started crying. He said he slept well last night and had a good breakfast. He had eaten well all day and was just chattering away like no tomorrow. He was excited too and the difference is amazing. He is gutted that he will miss his appointmnet with the specialist tomorrow but he has been told by the specialist in hospital that they will still set the wheels in motion for a possible lung transplant. Dad is a fighter and is determined not to be beaten. He is simply the best and I love him. My mum is so chuffed too, we were laughing earlier, we were so happy. We are so happy.
One step at a time, we got to get dad home first. Hopefully next week.
So thankyou everyone who has shown an interest in me and my family, it means alot and I think back to May when we had the devastating news about dad and I treasure the day I found this site.
Love to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxx
