It's been nearly 3 weeks out of my dad (57) coma now and he was on the acute ward for last nearly 2 weeks his progress on the acute ward has been very slow and very difficult as the only communication for my dad is for me n my family to try and lip read as he has traccy on and his swollowing is not working as he has some movement with his right hand he can aslo answer questions by pressing his hand on mine. Even thow his inprovments with his right arm and hand seem minimal but looking back im very greatfull as could lead to greater inprovment so im trying to stay positive! UNFORTUNATELY today he was moved back to intensive care as he haz a blood infection called SEPTIS which has really knocked him back in a big way! Ive just left the hospital as visiting finished at 8pm but was told this morning that my dad could well get organ failure or heart problems and prepare for the worst! Which we had to also PREPARE for the worst 3 weeks ago when we was told that the professors did not expect my dad to wake up at all out of coma AND HE DID! Also told he would have no vision but he has! so next 24 HOURS are going to be hard for my dad for sure. He has been on the correct antibiotics and his blood pressure and heart rate r exceptable for now my dad said WHY ME which i read lipped and i was DEVERSTATED as i dont know why him! It kills me to think my dads world has ended for him right now and i cant blame him for being DOWN as i can personally see the HURT! just by looking into his eyes. But i told him THANK YOU dad for fighting through all this as everyone doing there bit including you DAD !
We was told this would be a roller coaster and they wad right about that!!
I hope to post a better post on my dad VERY SOON !!!
