Dad in hospital again..........



My dad is in hospital again with Pneumonia Sunday night my sister Sandra had to talk mum into ring the ambos for dad as he was unable to breath at first he thought it was serious asthma attack and didn't want to go to hospital. It was the second night he had trouble breathing but nothing was helping, so Sandra thought he needed to go to hospital. 

At the hospital he was placed in a normal A & E bed but needed to pee so the nurse brought him a bottle so he could pee but trying to do so took so much out of him and made it so hard to breath that mum called the nurse in who took one look at him and ran off to fetch someone else to help him. He was then moved into the intensive care area of the A & E where a nurse was with him the whole time till he was moved to a ward. 

He should be in hospital for a number of days again, I know it is frustrating going to A & E but sometimes it is the best place for you. I worry about my dad a lot lately, as he is forever fighting chest infections and lung infections and Pneumonia.

Also last night just as I was thinking I would go to bed my niece Kelli rang and asked if I would be able to drive her and Daemon over to the hospital, he was sick throwing up and she rang the after hours GP who said to take him over. However she had left her car seat in Jono's car and had no way to get there so she rang me, of course I went and picked them up and dropped them off at the hospital. 

She told me this morning they ended up leaving the hospital without being seen as Daemon improved and was acting like nothing was wrong, of course when they got home he started throwing up again but today he is doing much better.

  1. I hope everyone gets well soon! Pneumonia is scary.

    About the horse show: Before Shelley's class, two girls were thrown from their horses at the same area of the arena. One didn't get up for several seconds. It made me weak in the knees!!!

  12. Hope everyone is feeling better, Your poor dad.

    That's odd about Daemon. Feeling better and then getting sick again. Did he have to go back to the hospital or did it turn around again?
