Got woken up this morning with a call from the nursing home saying dad had fallen.

I was woken to a call from the nursing home to say dad had fallen and was on his way to the Leeds General Infirmary. Dad's broken his hip, collar bone and got pain in his chest nurse said that they had put dad on the list for surgery tomoro but can not promise because if an emergency comes in dad may not go down till Monday.
When i saw him he was calling out with the pain and trying to pull out the catherter, the nurse said she would give him something for the pain but dad said he had been waitng ages so did not believe her.
She came back in about 15 mins and gave dad some morphine to help, within 20 mins he was at ease but moaning i spoke to the Dr about dad and how long the operation would take and he said 2 hours then he would go into recovery.
I do not think that dad is strong enough to go through an operation.of any kind.

Oh Paula, thats just awful news. And its a scandalous state of the health service that your dad might not be seen till MOnday... will say a wee prayer for him, and for you too, your emotions have certainly been through the mill these past few days.
