Yesterday afternoon my mum was having a well earned lie down upstairs and I said to my dad come on I think it would be s good idea to move you from your wheelchair back to your nice comfy chair
Managed to get dad up standing and then his right leg wouldn't move and I could see this wasn't going to work so whilst trying to hold him I grabbed the wheelchair for him to sit back in, dad then fell badly backwards on the floor and hit his head in the door!! I grabbed a cushion, checked his head, no blood, popped his head under cushion. Mum appeared and I said go to the neighbour to help get dad up, they didn't hear mum knocking! I said ok mum you sit with dad and I bolted over to my neighbour and banged like a nutter on their windows and doors, my neighbour came straight over and got my dad up and back in his chair!
I was crying my eyes out and kept apologising to dad as I totally blame myself!!
Dad said its not my fault but if I hadn't told him he needs to move it wouldn't have happened!!!!
Obviously dad was very shaken up!! He says this morning nothing hurts!!
I pulled something in my arm whilst trying to prevent the fall (but not bothered bout me)
Mum and sister keep saying it's not my fault but I can't stop crying! I could shoot myself for putting my dad through that!!
I just feel awful!!
