I haven't posted for a while. My Dad has been in hospital with aspiration pneumonia for nearly 3wks, with a two day interval, coming home but then back in.
He's medically (of sorts) fine so he is due home Wednesday. Last night I had a call from a nurse saying could I calm my dad down as he's was very agitated & aggressive. Trying to hit nurses and wouldn't go to bed. I could hear him and when I spoke to him he was ranting. This has never happened before! They got him into bed at last but I'm very concerned. When I saw his earlier in the day he had a wild look about him and did seem a bit annoyed but I'm truly shocked. Any experience of this out of the blue?
Thanks for reading xx
Dad has yet another chest infection so back on iv antibiotics. This is his eighth since December. He has always refused the PEG since the start, so now we (he) have to decide when, if or whether to carry on treatment next time he has one. I've looked after my dad for a couple of years now and this is so hard to deal with. So sad right now 😐
