My dad turned 87 on October 8th. He has had a tough time dealing with Parkinson's, skin cancer and now pulmonary fibrousis. He has been able to get around in the house okay using a cane on and off. I always have told him we would do all we could to let him live at home. We signed up for Hospice support just a few days ago, had hospital bed, walker and wheelchair coming. Then fate raised it's ugly head. We went to Dad's home and he had fallen in his bedroom and couldn't get up from the floor. It happed that the hospice nurse was there too. He was in too much pain to move so we called 911 for the ambulance to take him to the ER in Toasket. Then it was worst case stenario ... He had broken his hip. He was transported to the Omak Hospital for surgery. It ended up he had a total hip replacement. A huge shock to an already frail body. Today he is tired, weak and groggy. PT has been in to get him up and around, not too successfully, he's eaten a little. I talked with the Dr tonight and the prognosis isn't real hopeful.
