Thank you so much for the welcome, Sherry!
I've been reading many of the past threads for info already!
Yes, the transition has gone fine, although it's been quite stressful for 'Dad' and so we've had a lot of getting up at night, and increased issues.
The good news is that the new doc's appt went so very well!! He's on Warfarin and fell about
3 or 4 weeks ago and so he's off to have x-rays on his shoulder (which has been quite painful for him) and a cat scan for his noggin to be sure no damage happened. My hubby is on Warfarin as well, so we are well acquainted with the dangers.
Once the immediate is taken care of, we will concentrate more on what medications he should be on to help with the other health issues he has. The doc isn't too concerned with what type of dementia 'Dad' has, as she feels he is so far along with it that it doesn't matter much. I still would like to know which type of dementia he has not only for a better understanding of what we are dealing with, but also so that his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He was in such good spirits this morning - even after a rough night - that although he has trouble realizing that I've been in the family for 13 years, he told me he was very grateful and proud to have me "associated" (LOL!) with the family!!!
I so love this man!!! He's treated me like his daughter for the last 13 years, so I'm completed dedicated to this man as I my dad passed when I was just 17 years old.
I look forward to being on this forum, learning what I can and sharing and being supportive of the others!
Thanks for being here!
