Last December I had to stay at hospital for about a week for my surgery.
About two weeks ago, my father had a dull stomachache, and vomited a little blood.
We took him to the hospital, where I stayed last December.
As my father is suffering from Alzheimer's dementia, he needs to be taken care of by my mother.
Of course there are lots of nurses working at the hospital. Still without my mother, he would be terribly nervous. That's why my mother decided to stay at hospital with him.
We asked the hospital staff to let him stay at a private room. Lukily enough we got one. It was a
small room with a sofa which can be changed into a small bed at night.
Since that time my mother has stayed at hospital with him.
My mother is old, too, so once or twice a week I stay at hospital instead of my mother.
She sometimes needs to sleep at home and have a good rest.
When I stay, I leave the office as earlier as possible and go straight back home.
My husband takes me to the hospital and then takes my mother back home.
Next morning my husband takes my mother to the hospital and I start to my office.
I've stayed at the hospital three times. One night I was awaken by my father about eight or ten
times. He wanted to go to the bathroom every half or an hour. It was terrible.
I was so sleepy the next day.
Thanks to the doctors' and nurses' treatment and maybe with our effort, my father has got better
bit by bit. If the result of the next blood exam is good enough, my father will be able to be
We can't be simply happy with this.
My father was not cured but there's actually nothing that the hospital can do to him.
In spite of various of doctors' examination, they weren't able to find out
the cause of his condition.
They suspected that he had cancer, but after all they couldn't make it sure.
Anyway the time of his hospialization gave us time to think of my father.
Whatever disease he has, it is true that we have only a little time left.
My mother doesn't want to prolong his life too long, if he has pain.
A disease gives us a chance to prepare.
I'd like to make best use of the day left and say thank you to my father.
