Wondering once again if Dad is near the end? He has CKD but GFR is 19 so not yet "end stage". He has a red blood count haemaglobin of 9 and is very anaemic. A Dr said this week "He is very fragile in many ways" and another Dr said it is a matter of quality of life now rather than anything else. He has had numerous courses of Anti Biotics in the last few months for leg infections and UTIs, plus ulcers, AF , Stroke history and Dementia. I thought he had a heart attack last week but the medics have not followed this up - he was asking me to rip his shirt off as it was so tight and very high temperature talking nonsense but attributed to infection. He is 90 , so wondering how much longer he could go on for?
