Dad update

January 6, 2010 Uncategorized 15

Just a short post to say my dad was finally moved to re-hab today. He’s been feeling much better since yesterday, no psychosis, and only a short time yesterday with some symptoms of confusion, but it didn’t last long.
My brother got his TV/DVD player all hooked up to cable, and he said the food was much better..hoooray!
Tomorrow they will fill his day with all kinds of therapy, with the goal of getting him mobile and home to my mom asap. It may take two or more weeks, but that’s fine, he’s in a good place.

Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers…………..it’s been good to be able to share about it here.

    Hi, just saw you over at Lisa’s place and wanted to say good luck with your dad, I know all about aging parents and hospitals. My FIL was in the hospital last year for an emergency operation and he had hospital psychosis too (I think they also call it delirium). He woke up in the middle of the night convinced he was not in the hospital that he was in but in some old house somewhere, and was trying to get out. The nurses actually called us to get my husband to talk him down. He got over it the next day and distinctly remembers the whole episode.

    Hope your dad is doing better.

    Good news! Even though I have no idea what’s going on, but the most important part is that your dad is doing good and recovering. I wish him the best of luck and my prayers go out to your whole family Anita. Blessings

    Glad to hear that your dad is doing better. It’s got to be so difficult having them so far away and having to rely on other’s to let you know how he is.

    I hope you are planning a visit after he gets home. I know your family relies on you for a lot but they sound like great kids and capable of doing without you for a few days.
