My younger brother has cared for my dad the past 17 years but has now been dealing with medical problems of his own, so we decided to have my 90 yr. old dad come live with me & my husband. We were looking forward to going to the lake often, cause dad loves to fish. 3 days after he got here, he got real sick and had to be admitted to the hospital for a duodenal ulcer bleed. This man is a cancer survivor of the bladder, stomach and last year his colon. He also has had a corneal transplant in his left eye. Partial prothesis. He doesn't walk anymore. I bathe him in the morning, give him his eye drops and meds, then some cantaloupe, I get him up and into the wheelchair & out into the livingroom to watch his cowboy movies. Throughout the day we work on more eye drops and lunch and dinner. I give him a shave and a haircut every week. I work in the evenings and my husband cares for him while I am at work. I Love my Dad so much and it is an honor to care for him. The nurse that had been working with my Dad has suggested that we look into hospice so my dad's primary is going to call me. I'm not going to lie, I am kinda scared and very emotional lately because I am watching my dad decline pretty fast, he has lost a lot of weight and no matter what I prepare for him (Everything he asks for. Lol) he only takes a few bites here and there. Please forgive me for babbling on & on... just wished there was something I could do to make this more easier to go through. Right now, I am focused on keeping him as comfortable as possible & giving him anything he asks for. Thank you all for being a listening ear for me! God Bless you all!
