This is my 2nd post regarding my father. I think my last was too erratic and emotional.
My father was admitted back to hospital on Saturday. They diagnosed lower chest infection. Have him on oxygen 2 litres (I think).
They had to put in a catheter as his bladder was full but he wasn't going
Today the doctor rang and asked if he had a history of blood in stools. As they have discovered this today and want to retest tomorrow. The doctors have not said anything that would cause a concern but when I look at him. He's just a shadow of his former self. He barely talks to me when I visit.
History; He suffered multiple strokes 12 weeks ago and was left paralysed.
He can only move slightly. His speech is low and laboured. And we can't exchange many words.
He is also now peg fed as the stokes effected his swallowing.
My last post I asked why is he deteritoing to quickly. He's only 72. And retired in 2015. Would a doctor tell me if they had worries or concerns?
To me he looks like a dying man and says he has given up. And he feels numb and empty. It's horrible to watch and I cry most days.
Apart from the effects of the stroke. He does not have any other illness cancer etc. I'm just struggling to get answers from the doctors and nurses.
