Update

Dad is better, physically, but for some reason this hospital stay has taken his dementia, which was very mild to something very scary.

I saw him yesterday and he was mostly calm, but some work related issues cropped up and it made him agitated and now he's worse again.

They have been giving him Valium to make him sleep and that puts him in LALA Land.

I don't know if we are going to be able to bring him home and if we do if we will be able to handle him. I'm so scared and worried now and I feel completely powerless.

I don't want to separate my parents if at all possible. My mom wouldn't be able to visit with him ever, if he were in a skilled care facility.

I'm so upset right now...so if this blog goes a little quiet for awhile, it isn't because I don't want to blog anymore, it is because I'm too upset to blog.

Aw I'm so sorry to hear yall are going through such a rough time. Hospital visits can be so trying. Hopefully once he's home and things are 'normal' some of the symptoms he's having will lessen. Will keep yall in my thoughts and prayers <3

I'm sorry you are going through this trying time with your dad. I sincerely hope that, with time, he will calm and be able to come home.

My prayers and heartfelt best wishes!
