Grunting!

Hi Carin a, my father grunts a lot now. Initially he used to do it just when he was getting tired, but he's doing it almost all of the time now.

Sadly he's had a fall today and broken his hip, so his grunting has stopped as he's been put on oramorph for the pain until his op tomorrow. Of course we've been telling him not to move his legs, but he's forgotten as soon as we've told him, so he's in a lot of pain. He's already got too crumbled discs in his spine due to osteoporosis, it seems so unfair this beautiful gentle man has to have so much to put up with and understands none of it. Sorry, my rant over. Having a bad day.

I think your mum's grunting will probably continue and is part of the illness. Glad she's home with her loved ones now. I agree it's heartbreaking to see them failing :(

Oh my gosh.. yes the grunting .. my mother has started this recently .. she had a hospital admission back in November through to December .. over 2 admissions .. and since the 2nd admission I have seen lots of different behaviours not previously witnessed. Another stage of the dementia taking hold I suspect :( x
