Dads had 2 falls and a " found on his knees " ( I've seen that happen, that's fiddling in his bottom drawer or under the bed and not being able to get up so I do t think that " counts") in past 48hrs again. He's more confused too.

Desperately working on avoiding admission if we realistically can. Meeting the advanced nurse practitioner later. Hope it's uti or similar - the only worry will be if he's bumped his head I guess.

If you've been following my saga you'll know we had a scary and frustrating time in the oval hospital recently that was definitely not in his best interest.

Wish me luck !

( typically I'm waiting for an appointment for me now so I can't really just go over )

Well head been checked and we are all hoping its viral...
He still wants to go out to choose a little Xmas tree so that's good. Wilco for us !

Sounds like you're all having a tough time flowers Your last post sounds more positive though, that is lovely he wants to find a tree.

Not hugely optimistic for the weekend as he was coughing a bit when I left, but hey, even at nearly 92 you can have just a cold can't you !

Sugarplum I am just so determined to avoid hospital unless it's really in his best interest. It's just not the place for a very old chap with dementia.

Tree up - pretty fibre optic one smile

Thanks both.

I totally agree with you and that's the call we'll be making. It is cold season, lots of people hacking away down here.

Well done on the tree smile
