I wanted to update all of you on my dad. It seems that he has really taken a turn and not in the good direction. Like I posted before this all started on December 29th when he fell two days in a row. He was talking srange stuff and keep thinking there were people in the house. He walking became very bad. When we saw the doctor it was determined that he was going through withdrawl after getting fentenyal patches that were not any good. When I put the new patch on things seemed to improve for a day or two and then right back where they were.
Over the weekend he fell out of the bed again. He is talking normal, but still hearing things and his walking is really bad. He goes for at CT on Monday and then sees the doctor on the first. I am not sure what has happened so quickly.
We do not let him drive anymore or go to the store. He can not walk that long and I am afraid that he would get confused. He can not keep track of the day or time. Mom and I do not leave him anymore. At night we hardly sleep because he roams all night and we are afraid that he will fall. I am thinking he may be having dementa starting.
I am sorry to post such gloomy news, but I really needed someone to talk with about this. Mom is a nervous wreck dealing with this when I am at work. I will let you know what we find out on the 1st.
Thanks for listening.
