Hi Lyn,

I haven't been on the forum for months, but I wanted to touch base and say hello to you and the others.

Dad has really gotten much worse and we have been dealing with huge hygiene issues and his agressiveness and refusal to allow us to clean him up or change him (pew). He is still very strong, but will swat at you and put up his fist and grab your wrist and squeeze. Mom has been a saint! I know if he were in the hospital they would just knock him out with drugs and change him and bathe him.

Well, finally we got someone to listen and the doctor is putting him in the hospital psyc ward for an evaluation and med trial. They will keep him long enought to get the new meds adjusted in an attempt to lower the aggressiveness and to help him sleep through the night so mom can get some sleep too.

Hopefully this will go a long way in us being able to care for him at home.

I continue to spend two or three days each week and I am just thrilled when I can accomplish any little hygiene task with him. Never thought I 'd be so happy to clean accomplish so little.

I hope you are doing well me sweet sister, Lyn.

Love you lots!!!

Haven't been on-line because I have actually been feeling semi-normal and am able to do more and more. I hope your health has improved as well. Last I knew you were have a pretty rough time of it.

I'd love an update.

Hugs and Blessings!

Awe Lyn sad

I'm sooooo sorry about your dad. I hope he is able to enjoy your company when you are there. I know you worry about him. Hmmmmmm . . . some day . . . no pain, no tears, no worries.

Oh . . . you ARE in a fix! I wish you could get a big, long rest. I know we care too much about our folks to stop helping. . . but be careful.

It was nice to chat with you again. If you don't have my email address, post here and I'll send it to you.

Love and Blessings!
