  • My Dad is End of Life as of a few days ago



    1 reply


    New members here. Here what going on

    My Mum died at the begin of Jan 2023, she was 75 years old and we had the funeral at the begin of Feb 2023.

    Which left me and my dad which at the time he was 75 years old, he now 76 years old.

    On Feb 12th my dad got admitted to hospital, due to breathing, bloated legs and his feet.

    We found out he had Pneumonia in the right lung, infection in his bone in his foot, along with COPD, Emphysema and Diabetes Type 2.

    He been in hospital now a month and his Pneumonia cleared up, but got it back again a lot worse.

    He now been set on end of life care, as there no improvement. Along with him not eating much at all, some days nothing at all. He also drinking a lot less also.

    He is saying, he is hot, but isn't hot to the touch.

    There is also some confusion coming in over the last day or 2.

    There has also been 2 discharge attempts before he went end of life, but each time go down hill.

    I am personally getting stressed out with worry over him and also still grieving over my Mum.

    Thanks for reading this and any feedback
