Things are going from bad to worse, dad's 3 breaks in his femur are healing well and the orthopaedic Dr's are so pleased with dad's progress regarding healing etc.
But the Geriatric Dr's say that dad needs to be sent to the delirium unit today, the reason for dad's move is because dad's been very confused we have been telling the staff about this for days and days.
Dad 's chest was rattling and he was coughing but could not get the mucus up, we asked for a Dr to give dad some antibiotics but the Dr had gone so it will be tomoro. Dad was in and out of sleep all the time today and a good friend of dad's called in to see him but dad did not have a clue who he was but we are so glad that you came.
Dad is now in the delirium unit still at Sir Charles Gardner Hospital and it was a bit of a shock this unit is a secure place, dad just slept all the time so we wondered if they had changed any of his medication so we asked if they were giving dad any medication that was causing him to sleep so much.
They said that dad is only on 2 lots of medication one to stop blood clots and panadol, i asked if we could have a MRI scan done to see what damage these mini strokes have done but the Dr was not available so made an appointment to meet with these new Drs tomoro.
So Jo and i will go meet with the Drs tomoro and find out what is going on with dad, and i hope that they can answer all the questions i need to ask.
Thanks you for all the good wishes, take care
