A busy day ... and night!

My wife and I spent most of today at the WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? show at Olympia, Kensington. (Our visit to the show will be covered in a later blog entry.) We had only been home about fifteen minutes when the care home that looks after my father 'phoned to tell me that he had fallen over and hit his arm quite badly on a radiator, and was going to be taken to hospital as soon as an ambulance arrived.

As soon as we know which hospital he is being taken to, we can set off to be with him whilst the Accident and Emergency staff assessed him and deal with his injuries. Getting there should take less than an hour ... I hope.

It looks like it is going to be a busy night after a busy day!

    We have just got home. The X-rays showed that my father had not done any serious damage to himself when he fell over, but that he does have a urinary infection ... again.

    He is now back in his care home, very tired and very confused. Hopefully he will feel better after a good night's sleep and some antibiotics.

    All the best,

    Bob

    Thanks for your kind words. My father has not been injured (luckily the care home is careful and not careless) but he does have a urinary infection that probably caused his loss of balance, which resulted in his fall. He is now back in the care home and on a course of antibiotics ... and should be better in a few days time.

    All the best,

    Bob

    Thanks you for your prayers and support. Luckily my father was not injured when he fell, but he does have a urinary infection. This probably caused him to lose his balance and caused the fall.

    He is now back in his care home, and is on antibiotics to cure the infection. Hopefully he will be better in a few day's time.

    All the best,

    Bob
