Re: Dad has been admitted to hospital

Thankyou all so much for taking the time to reply xx Dad actually said to me yesterday that he thinks he is depressed and today he saw his gp who prescribed him some anti-depressants.

Re: Dad has been admitted to hospital

Well we visited Dad yesterday and he actually looked better than i'd expected, he had some colour in his cheeks although he's still painfully thin. I was armed with a freshly baked cake which he said he'd have a slice of straight away! I cut him a small piece knowing he's not got much of an appetite...

Re: Poorly dad

Hi Jacqui Sorry to hear about your dad being so poorly, its so hard seeing them like it. I don't know whether it is ageism but I certainly feel that when it's an inoperable tumour they are put to the back of the queue, thats how I have felt at times with my dad and he is only 62. It sounds like thin...

Re: Dad has been admitted to hospital

Hi Deb Well Dad had a metal stent put in this morning but hasn't been allowed home as there was some bleeding during the procedure, but he is insisting he is coming home tomorrow!! I hope he is well enough to come home tomorrow as I don't think he's coping very well in there. Laura, how did it go wi...

Re: Dad has been admitted to hospital

Thankyou Deb, Catherine and Laura, Dad was booked in to have his stent done at 7am!! Haven't heard anything yet so just waiting.

Re: Dad has been admitted to hospital

Spoke to the nurse on Dad's ward and she didn't tell me much apart from he is waiting to have some observational tests done and an ultrasound scan and that he was quite comfortable. I did manage to speak to Dad on th...
