It started on Thursday i rang him which i do regularly as he is 91 yrs old. On his own and still in the house he had with my mother who only died 2yrs ago. He didnt sound to bad, he was going out for eggs from the local butcher who he has dealt with for yrs. That is all for one day, and i said i would go down on friday. I rang on Friday to see if he needed anything taking and he was not good. His voice was not right, so i said i'm on my way. He had a very bad stiff neck he also has RA. He said the bedroom window was open and that was why his neck hurt.I fetched him some Paracetamol and told him how to take them as he does'nt take pain killers. I rang my brother to go see and see him that night after work to make sure he had some dinner., which he did and he did it for him. This is Sunday and my brother has gone and he is ringing me to let me know how he is. I am going again tomorrow and will see if he needs the GP, if he does i ring for a home visit.. My older sister usually see to him with me visiting when i can but she has gone to spain for a few weeks. She will come back if i need her but trying not to do that, other sister says he has been like this a few times this last few months but i hadnt seen him or heard him like that before.I dont think he is eating or drinking enough so wtch this space.
Sorry i've put it on here but beside my children the rest of the family forget i looked after my mother-in-law for 17yrs with no help except from them . So i do know what i'm talking about, if i say there is something wrong then there is.
Thanks for any replies.
