in the nursing home, 2005, after the last hip fracture

My father has a fractured femur, which I was told is a hip fracture, and he's doing the same thing as five years ago - he's depressed and won't eat. But now there's more to be depressed about: he's already in a wheelchair, his leg is in an immobilizer all the time, he's served chopped food, and he's in pain. Yet he seems to be hanging on.
