Firstly many many thanks for all of your support
It's 3.30am in the uk and I'm at the hospital with dad, mum and I are doing separate shifts!
We will not leave dad because he is extremely scared!!!!
Mum is about to have her first 8 hour break/sleep so far we've been coping on 2 hours each per 24 hours, today I've decided that's stops! We will both now go home at seperate times for 9 hours whilst the other one remains with dad
So update on my beautiful very frightened dad....in A & E on Monday the X-ray they "don't think" showed any blockage but after a serpository (wrong spelling prob I'm v tired) "some" poo came out, a lot was manual pulled out! However there is still LOADS left despite emimas and loads of different laxatives!
The being sick continues bringing up poo (very watery) so sorry for the info!!
So yday morning they decided they needed to insert a tube up the nose down the throat to remove what's coming up to avoid aspiration
Unfortunately this was a truly God awful experience that dad was unable to tolerate and I felt it soooo wrong to put him through that, they said they'd come back later to try again, I calmed dad down
Mum returned and I explained what happened and after speaking to the surgeon he explain it has to be done to avoid aspiration! My dad has refused to have another try and do you know what I don't blame him!!! I've told him he is rather unwell now and without the treatment could become very unwell, I haven't explained the details or the fact that he could die!
The palliative care team have been changed certain meds and have put in an anti sickness drug attached to dads leg with a box....
Last night about 6pm dad suddenly informed me there are 7 cats out there outside that window (the view from the window shows other parts of the building in hospital and Windows, not close enough to see into) initially I was like what? No can't have heard that right and asked dad to repeat it and he said the same thing and that there had only been 3 cats in the morning.......oh s**t, spoke to nurse she said he was hallucinating, before I left he tod me one cat had just fallen down...oh god
Anyway he's now asleep
We are still waiting for all this poo which apparently there is still loads of to appear!
I've been told we are in for to long haul and that dad is very ill and things will now start to decline further (please dear lord let my dad sleep and rest in peace) I do not want my dad suffering anymore nor does my mum!!
Dad thinks he will be dying very soon
We are NOT God so I don't know but I do know this is totally unfair and I'm finding it hard not to crack!
My love and best wishes to you all and I will update you again when I know more X
