Totally Gorjuss Dt card and my poorly Dad

My dad went into hospital as an emergency with a severe water infection on Monday.  2 lots of antibiotics failed over the past few weeks. He has been so unwell going to bed at 4;30 p.m. Aches, pains, very high blood pressure. He went in as emergency at 10:am on Monday and was still sitting on a chair in the corridor at 11:30PM as there was no bed.!!!!! He is 85! And he hadn't been given anything to eat since 12:00. He has had antiobiotics injected via a drip  every day since Monday and is feeling a lot better. Just doesn't seem right does it. He came out yesterday. He has suffered with these problems for anout 15 years and they have now discovered that he has Ecoli!!!! and has probably had it for 15 years. Hopefully this strong medication will sort him out.Any more problems and he has to go straight into hospital and on the drip/medication again.
Anyway here is my DT card for Totally Gorjuss. This week you have to use a Gorjuss girl on your card. Very nervous knowing who is sponsoring this week, Suzanne Woolcott. Hope you like it.
Enjoy the lovely weather

  12. Sarah, I am so sorry to hear about the problems your Dad has been having. ANd knowing now that he might have had this for 15yrs. I will keep him, you and your family in my prayers that he make a full recovery from this and that they can get a handle on it!!

  13. Oh my goodness Sarah I am so sorry that your Dad has been suffering so and that he had such a horrible experience at hospital. It is so hard to cope with what is going on in the NHS at the moment. I am so relieved that they have got to the bottom of his problems and can now act quickly if he falls ill again. Wish him well from me.

  15. Hi Sarah, sorry to hear your dad has been unwell, I know just how painful a water infection can be and really sympathise with hom. But hopefully he will be on the mend soon sending him speedy recovery wishes. I can totally understand with regard to the hosptial there was a shortage of beds when I was in there a few weeks back and I waited hours for a bed, then they couldn't wait to kick me out of it once the op was done.
