I had an email from my brother Brian telling me that my father had now stopped walking altogether. Not only that but he has lost a stone in weight in the last week. Worst of all though he is passing blood in his urine. So he has gone to Barnsley General Hospital for investigation.
He remembers nothing which is a clear sign that the brain is shutting down. Sadly when that happens the body functions follow. So as I have said to Brian, I think we have to prepare for the worst.
