    Hello Jonie
    What a worrying time for you. Have you had any information from the Doctors or ward sister looking after him? If not it would be worth asking to speak to someone.
    Take care

    Thankyou for your response. Yes we spoke to Dads consultant last monday. Was going to transfer him to a nursing home and fund it for three month. He said they could not do any more for Dad. Then because he looked abit better thursday they stopped the fast track. So we are now back to square one. But in the meantime Dad deteriorating rapidly.
