And again, Thank-you, for all the encouragement. I saw my Dad tonight. He seems much more at peace, than I've ever seen him. It's almost as if he can stop holding his breath and relax. He's in the hands of competent people, he now knows it, he doesn't seem to need to fight for his territory, anymore, nor does he have to pretend he's got everything under control. He has the time and peace to come to terms with the reality of what is happening to him. Time and spac e to grieve, as do I. Although it is pure he-- jumping through those last half dozen hoops. He is high on the Dept. of Health's priority list due to Adult Protection's involvement. He has a ward with one doctor, three nurses, only 1 other person (2 patients), and about fifty channels on his TV. They are seeking a place for him dilligently. If I wasn't so gall darn tired and in pain due to this freezing temperatures, I'd become more active in the selection process.
There was this one very special mounty that came all the way, following the ambulance, off duty, but came b/c he'd responded to a Domestic Disturbance complaint one night about 5 weeks back, this one special mountie, who knew the situation very well, heard the call over the scanner and came to back me up and explain how incredibly impossible a situation it really was. That's an angle of mercy. He had stressed to me on the earlier call, that "things are going to get worse", you won't be able too keep up once he starts wandering at night. How right he was. The Fibromyalgia gets extremely bad when my sleep is interrupted, (not to mention the continuous cold).
I hurt all over, like crazy. Now there is so much to do, my stepmother, Dad's wife, gets jealous and ticked off when she feels he's getting too much attention and starts to up the ante. She now has appointments she has to be lugged around to. Anyway, duty calls, I'll have to get up real early to get her and go on to Appt. in city, I do have a week or so to adjust to the idea. Yup, I did what I could. No more, no less.
