And here we are again, back in hospital!
Dad hadn't been well over Christmas, unable to come up to our house, and eating very little. In addition, his bowels were not working as they should, probably due to him now being on Zapain, so Out of Hours doctor was called and dispatched him to hospital for blood tests etc.
(Sod's Law dictates that, in our family, the vast majority of our need for health care seems to happen during evenings, week-ends or bank holidays.)
The following day saw him catheterised, having a blood transfusion and intravenous antibiotics but looking a better colour already.
"He may be able to go home tomorrow," they said yesterday.
Today they are saying that they are not sure about his ability to cope with his catheter if they do send him home and can I talk to 'Karen' when I go in to visit.
Watch this space ...
