Home Again.

Dad is home from hospital. He came home yesterday. He saw the consultant in the morning and he said that as he had not had any further pain there was unlikely to be a problem. He has had a bypass so it would be very unlikely to a problem with that. The consultant said that in his experience it was unlikely that Dad would have a recurrence. Dad was happy with that and eager to get home with changed medication.

We on the other hand were not too happy, we were worried that he had essentially come home with no idea what had happened and if it would happen again. My Brother and I decided to talk to the consultant as we were concerned, he said that dad simply didn't want to be there, they were relatively happy that he could go home and they couldn't prevent him from leaving.

So it all feels a bit strange at the moment, I am glad he is home but I wish we knew that he had been treated for the cause. At the end of the day it is his choice.

Hang in there, Lizzy. I totally understand when you are told by a doctor that they just don't know what it is that is causing pain or a condition. So, I know how frustrated you must feel. But, you are least your dad is out of the hospital and it sounds like he is feeling better. That part is good! Hopefully, he will continue on that way.


P.S. Congrats on the new camera I see you are purchasing. I have heard so many good things about Fuji cameras and always thought that if I took the plunge and bought a new one, I would seriously look at a Fuji. Have fun with your new toy!

I can see you are in two minds about your Dad being at home. Not easy, at least you can keep an eye on him being relatively near. Praying he is fully on the mend. Take care. Raymonde. xxx
