"My very elderly dad"
Posted by About my dad (as ),
My dad was admitted to Busselton Hospital due to being weak in his legs and not feeling well. My dad has terminal cancer. I had a meeting with a beautiful doctor who explained how progressed the cancer was and said we needed to put Dad in a nursing home. This was organised straight away and the hospital where told of the process being put into place for my dad to go into William Carey. The long weekend was coming up and the hospital asked me to move my father to Margret River Hospital. This turned out to be a disaster. My father cried every day and just wanted to come back to Busselton. I realise that Busselton has to look after sick patients, but when I went into the hospital to look for my dads toilet bag the hospital wards where empty. My point is that my dad spent 5 days in Margret River Hospital, which is lovely, crying to come back to Busselton. He might not be with us much longer and the suffering he has had to go through is very unfair, he is a very elderly man.
