My father, almost 91, has been in a nursing home for 18 months after being hospitalised with e-coli. He is extremely ill and has been getting one uti after another. As soon as anti-biotics finish he has another attack......very hostile, raised temp and now is incredibly weak and bed ridden. He only has one kidney due to cancer. He has lymphoma. When hosptialised a year ago they thought there was something 'happening' regarding his prostate which we took to mean cancer too. He has had skin cancer removed in the passed 6 years too. We had a phone call 4 weeks ago to say he wouldn't make it through the night - he did. We had the same call Sunday and here we are !! Monday the GP visited and requested another water sample be sent off to try and find another anti-biotic. And so it continues...... I haven't visited for 2 days as I am completely drained emotionally. He says he wants to die......what can I do ????
