Lyn - I'm so sorry I've missed all this,for some reason I wasn't getting email notifications even though I've subscribed to this thread.
That paramedic was totally out of order and should be disciplined. If I'd been there I think I'd have punched him on the nose. There is only so much you can do if someone tells you they are drinking,you can't watch them every second so please don't blame yourself. I'm lucky in that my Dad does tell me things. I've been at his house today because he had blood in his urine. Phoned the 111 service and got him some antibiotics,but then he phoned tonight to say the bleeding was worse. I got him to phone 111 again and doctor got back to him quickly to more or less say 'as you were'.
Apparently blood in urine can be frightening but seldom serious. That was from the internet. Phoned him back and he seems better and less upset than earlier,so I'll phone again in the morning and go over. He's about 5 miles from me,it seems too far at times like this.
To everyone else - Verdun,SGL and OL....heartfelt best wishes to you and of course to you Lyn.
