Both you and your Dad will be in my thoughts, Revanne.

Dad caught a chest infection over christmas followed by a bad reaction to the antibiotics. He's now not wanting to drink so is a bit confused and I am trying to persuade him that drinking cups of tea is preferable to being on a drip in hospital being rehydrated. It maybe too that the tumours in his lungs are growing but he's not booked in for another scan until March.

Yours prayers would be much appreciated
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Oh, revanne, I'm so sorry to hear that.  Here's hoping he decides to drink some tea and not go to the hospital.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

I hate to hear that!  I'll definitely be praying. Is there any way to get the scan moved earlier, now that his condition has changed?

i truly hope your father is on the mend very soon. I would recommend telling his doctor that he is not getting down any liquids. Becoming dehydrated can be serious, better to play it on the safe side when it comes to his health.

Aw, revanne, hat is so difficult! Still, you are both blessed to be near each other during his illness. I will definitely pray that he receives the care he needs, and for strength for both of you.

Thank you for your prayers. Dad is a bit better - eating and drinking again thank God.

I've now involved the district nurse so when we begin to need some carer support the first steps are in place. I'm so grateful that we have the room to look after him and that I have a wonderful DH who is willing to do most of the care.

What with a demanding vocation and looking after Dad this forum is a Godsend - thank you everyone for keeping me sane - or as near to sane as I get ;)

This is good news that your dad is doing better, and that you have future support if it is needed.
As to us keeping you sane? Of course we are here, anytime, with warmth and friendship. But I did not know that sanity was ever a requirement. ;D
Wait, perhaps I am confusing sanity with normalcy. Normalcy is not a requirement. Sanity therefore must be a side benefit of friendship.
Sending my friendship to you and your family.

I think your definition of sanity is wonderful. Thank you and for the friendship

I'm glad to hear he's doing somewhat better, and that you are getting the care and loving support that you need as well, since you need it too as well as your Dad.

Very glad to know that your Dad is doing better, and that in our humble way, we contribute to your sanity.

As you contribute to ours, as well.   :)

Glad to hear he is improving, revanne, and that you are getting the support you need.

We are always here to provide friendship, support, and prayers. And the occasional cyber (((hug))).

Can't vouch for how sane I am, but perhaps  "fighting fire with fire" will help ward off your insanity with my own ;D.
