Dad update

23 Sep

The latest plan was to release him today, but transfer him to another hospital with physiotherapists and occupational therapists. He has torn some ligaments in his shoulder and they need to help him to recover the use of that shoulder – and, ideally, check on his walking (he uses a stick, may need to graduate to a frame).

Unfortunately, he tried to get out of bed during the night, presumably to go to the toilet. He ended up getting stuck halfway off the bed, out of reach of the call button, and spending an uncomfortable spell of time (hours? not sure) until someone came by to check on him. As a result, his shoulder is really uncomfortable again, so they will keep him in the hospital for a few more days until he’s ready to be transferred to the other hospital.

Such a stressful time.
