    He's ok thanks, just bruised his ribs. He went to the hospital today and they said he didn't have to use his breathing machine if he didn't want to and to just try it during the day. They're also giving him pills to relax him so think he feels a bit better about that x

    tabkets to calm him down and relax him aswell, they have definitely made a massive difference, hopefully they work well for your dad ... Katrina x

    Hi Tabby,

    Sorry to hear of your dad's fall and bruised ribs can be very painful for a long time.

    Hopefully his will be OK soon.

    Love Terry

    Hi Tabby;

    Where is he? Does he just not want to eat or is there a reason?

    Love Terry

    He won't even have ensure. He's just at home, says he's in too much pain to eat and he'll be sick x

    Hi Tabby;

    Sorry to hear this, is he drinking anything much and is he being sick with everything he's eating. There is a a feeding system that uses a tube down the nose into the stomach.

    It is upto what your dad wants to do. The hospice is a good place to seek advice. He does need to drink, perhaps call the doctor or emergency numbers in your area.

    Hugs, Terry

    Thanks terry. Managed to get him to have a glass of orange and a chocolate biscuit. Not exactly healthy!
