Just got back.
From the hospital. Dad had a massive nosebleed right before Thanksgiving. We called his VA doctor and were told to pinch his nose and buy him Ocean spray for it. Nothing to worry about.
Last night, he had another one. Bled so bad he was gagging on his own blood. I took him to the hospital and they stopped it with silver nitrate, but the doctor there said it is serious and needs to be looked at by a specialist. I am calling that doctor in a few hours when they open.
One good thing happened. The social worker told me that she will contact social services and see if there is anything that can be done to get us some assistance. She said that she's heard lots of complaints about the homecare available where we live. Apparently, we are one of many who have had problems.
