Dad can't eat and drink without choking now. Had only a few spoons of food and drink. Trying to talk and is hallucinating more from dehydration no doubt. Doctors came last night for second time, eventually after hours of waiting. His saliva is going straight down without swallowing and it's collecting in his lungs. Explains the random choking. He only choked with food/drink a few days ago, now that's changing. We have 24 hours before a decision is made. He is agitated as it is, must be painful being so dehydrated so that in my opinion is too long. The doctor said it could improve but it's highly likely it's the progression of the dementia. Have to come to terms with the next stage. End of life meds. Horrific. Can't believe it. My Dad. My big strong Dad. Last Thursday he was 6 stone 8, he will be far less today. So sad. I just wish this suffering was over, my mum just wanted him to make their 50th anniversary on the 20/8. We have the radio on for him and Endless love came on by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross, the worst song ever for emotions. She asked me who sung it, I know what she was thinking of, his funeral.
