Father just getting over shingles since last Monday. This set him back tremendously. He has undiagnosed intestinal issues, that pain is back. His Dr. won't see him until he gets blood work then a CT scan. In the meantime I am over there 3 x day making sure he takes his meds and eats. He is taking way too many pain pills and is quite loopy and unstable. Visiting nurse came on Sat. I did not learn anything new from them and they will only check on him weekly. I do not know what to do next for him. I'm an only child, work full time and have an unsupportive husband. I feel like I need a care/case manager to help me make decisions. I had no problem when my mother had AD doing all of this. But now, just me and I am suffocating. And father is not taking his heart meds either, so his health is at risk. Should I just get his blood work done and wait for them to schedule the CT? Or go back to the ER and tell them he needs immediate care and I am not getting it? Feeling very hopeless. Sorry this is so long. Thank you.
