Lyn - I echo what the others have said - IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT! Elderly parents can be so difficult, bless 'em. But do make a formal complaint to the Ambulance Trust about that Paramedic!!!
Verdun - hydration is so important - not enough fluid leads to severe confusion - Pa was in hospital and was given a few weeks to live on his 90th birthday - now he's in The Lovely Home and coming up to 95 which just shows you what proper care can do! The carers monitor how much fluid he has and if he hasn't had enough his favourite carer comes and sits with him and encourages (flirts) with him until he's had his allotted amount!
