Recommended Posts

been getting some really bad health news (my Spouse, not me). . and we moved my Dad into assisted living (against his will), and spent weekend in Houston trying to sort / clean his house so we can sell it (hoarder crossed with collector, but he hasn't touched anything in over 4 1/2 years since my Mom died. . so yeah, it was / still is pretty bad).

so even tho my Brother is doing most all of the Heavy lifting with Dad (he lives in Houston, and moved Dad to a place a few blocks from him)

I'm so stressed. . can't stop eating, and prolly put on 10 lbs in the past 2 weeks.

Not going into detail here (tho those that are fb friends with me have seen me post on my wall).  But yeah.

 Spouse is  in hospital since “emergency call” on Friday to go there NOW

 

we don’t know when he’s going to be released and of course I head to Atlanta for dragoncon wed morning and it’s gonna suck if I have to go while he’s in the hospital. )least of which problem is their he was going to take me to airport on wed )

 

the whole situation is scary and confusing and stressful 

 

so this far this weekend has sucked )but at least been able to stay with him despite Covid restrictions)

Alzheimer's can go fuck itself over, sideways, and under.

My father, who's barely 60, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's. It's gotten to the point where he can no longer drive. We took away his keys about a month ago to give you an idea of how far along he is.

So last night, my parents went out to a movie with a couple of their friends. About 2/3 of the way, dad went out to use the toilet and didn't come back. Mom sent one of their friends out to look for Dad--make sure he didn't get lost on the way back from the bathroom. They were still looking by the time their movie ended. Theater staff got involved with the search. Turns out, Dad went into a different screen, which was showing a different movie, sat down, and watched that until the end.

A rant somewhat coaster related... I broke my wrist and doctor said no coasters at my diagnosis. My first follow up I got him to allow me to ride coasters. Went to SFGAm and turns out you can't ride Maxx, Goliath, Raging Bull, Batman, Superman, X-Flight with a cast. Those are just notable ones, there are more. So dumb! I don't see how I cant ride X-Flight if I rode Joker. Both restraints and riding positions are extremely similar, yet out of the two, Joker is the one I would think would be more of the issue due to the fact its trying to eject me into oblivion while X-Flight gracefully goes about.

yeah. . . my Brother and I are dealing with Dementia.

we had to put Dad into a closed gate community. . but I dont' think he'll be there very long - he needs full time watching/nurse.
despite giant signs all over things, he can' remember, and he keeps taking way too much of his meds despite all our efforts to put them in easy to understand pill dispensers (he keeps saying they are vitamins, and so if he takes too many, no big deal).   So after the 2nd emergency call to the doctor as he's taken a full weekend supply of blood-thinners with breakfast?   yeah. . he's gonna have to be moved somewhere with daily assistance (which he insists he doesnt' need).

 

so I feel for ya.
