Hello I feel guilty straying onto the forum, I only seem to appear when I want something. I'm still a newbie to all this though, so I struggle to offer help to anyone else. I live in Canada and my dad's got Alzheimer's. He lives in England with my mum. I got an email just now from my sister to tell me dad had to go to hospital today with horrendous nosebleeds and bleeding from his bottom. They've checked him over, stopped the nosebleeds and done some tests. It's the third really big explosive set of nosebleeds he's had in a month. I've searched around the Alz site to see if there is a connection between the bleeding and Alz, or if it's something else. I think you will guess my concerns, especially as they've done blood tests and these have been sent off to oncology for examination. My mum's coping pretty well as always, and, when I rang her, she was talking about getting wooden flooring as the nosebleeds have wrecked the carpet. I don't know how she copes. Thank you, any experiences, or thoughts gratefully received.
