We're getting ready for dad to be discharged early next week, but had a new challenge yesterday. My mum had a small heart attack ,and is now on the ward next to my dad. She has suffered with AF for some time now, so is at high risk of heart problems/strokes. It's always brought on by stress too. Now we have the question - what will happen to dad? I'm trying to keep her calm to get her better, but this is all she can think of. I can't see any way around it other than a care home. Feeling devastated. This just isn't what we wanted for him. Which is worse, mum stressing over dad being in a care home, or stressing over looking after him?!!! Although I live around the corner, I can't be there 24/7 as I have to work and I've got two children. Feeling helpless and more than a bit lost today.
