His Doctor thinks he needs complete rest and quiet and nothing to tire his heart.
Thank you Doctor. What worries me most is that my father has eaten nothing for the last eleven days and weighs over a stone more than he did on the day of arrival into hospital and is getting bigger. They keep giving him enemas and although he is on water tablets, should they not put a drain into his abdomen to drain the huge amount of excess fluid? At this rate his heart is tiring out and the enemas are exhausting him and he will catch pneumonia at this rate. What do you think Doctor?
