My Dad had a serious fall back in January this year, he spent some months in hospital (1 month in Critical Care in an induced coma). He suffered from multiple injuries all over his body (broken ribs, leg, arm, neck, back and a brain injury). On the day he came in he was taken down to theatre (once stable enough) to add a drain for the blood and fluid on the brain. They also had to build his skull (compound fracture) and we were told it was touch and go.
Such a traumatic time for the family, but my Dad (63) came through it and after spending another month in the Rehabilitation Unit (The Walton Centre) he was discharged and came to live with me and my boyfriend.
He only went home to his own house last month after spending another 4 months with us. We are all really proud of him.
I worry myself sick though, and I suppose this is why I am here. I am intrigued by other peoples stories and would like to seek some support and advice if possible. Its the unknown, and I'm not really sure what to expect. Although he seems to be 'himself' there are times he is forgetting things and is very tired etc.
Thanks in advance.
