    Unhappy my dad has me scared big time!

    Alright everyone, some of you may already know that my dad is in the early stages of alzheimers. He is 83 now. Well, for the past few weeks, he has been getting more and more disoriented, almost no balance what so ever, and lately has been really confused, and slurring his speech.

    I thought he might be having a stroke today, so I made my mom take him to the hospital this afternoon. It turns out that he has an advanced uti infection. I guess this can cause stroke like symptoms in elderly ppl.

    So, here I sit @ the hospital still tonight, he is very combative, wants to go home, calling me all kinds of bad names, cuz I won't let him out of bed to go home. But he has been deemed a fall risk by the nurses, and fell once when my mom and I weren't here. They said he needs a sitter for the night. I have a reeling its gonna be me, cuz my mom just can't handle it.

    He has me scared to death right now. I've never ever seen him like this before. It's taring me up right now. Guess I'm gonna do whatever I need to do now, with his best interest in mind.

    Thanks for hearng me vent right now.
    Please keep Bill O'NEILL in your prayers tonight. We really need it.

    Thanks puff family.

    Phil, hang in there buddy. It's never easy to see the ones we love get older and have serious health problems. Be strong for him and the rest of your family. Thoughts and prayers coming your way.

    I've been somewhat in your shoes with my father in the hospital and had to "tell him like it is" and it was tough but in his best interests. I think he is starting to get seenile or early early alzheimers....

    Thoughts and prayers are with you and your Dad.

    Phil,

    You, your family and your father will definitely be in my prayers. My family went through this with my Grandma a few years back. If I can give you one good piece of advice: enjoy the good days, you can't get em back.

    So sorry to hear that Phil.
    I have been threw something similar but yet worse and is not easy.
    As you said you have to have his best interests at heart even though he knows no different.
    It is a very hard thing to go threw as I have been there but yet makes us stronger in the end. I know it is not easy now.
    Praying for your Dad, You and Your Family.

    Your Dad is certainly in my prayers Phil. But as are you and your family because these will be hard times ahead and you'll need to be strong for many. It's always tougher when something happens to our Fathers because we've seen them as "superheroes" when growing up.
