I got my father to see a new doctor as his last one was just ignoring my fathers issues. It was just in time as Dad lost so e sight in his eye and the eye itself is actually perfect no retinal tears and so on. During the course of his investigations his new doctor was able to actually rule out Parkinson's . I. Am livid with old doctor but have bigger issues. Dad had a range of scans today and they are looking for a brain tumour. We get results tomorrow but I am very frightened tonight. I know he is in his mid eighties but I can't bare him suffering or having a painful death. I am really not ready to lose him either . It's almost a carbon copy of what happened his brother 5 years ago weirdly . I am still hopeful and his doctor told me there is cause for hope and it's early days in his testing . Really I just want this to be over and for it to be next week already. I always assumed my father would go quickly from his cardiac issues . Major decline or pain was not on his radar . I have faith in this new doctor and she has. Accomplished. More I. Two days than the last doctor did in years. Wish us luck xx

My dad's health is really bad. When he starts running a fever he refuses to follow doctors instructions to immediately get medical attention. This would prevent him from having to go into the hospital. So EVERY TIME he has a cold, he ends up in the hospital. Since he is doing it to himself, if he goes this time I am not going to visit him.
