I have not answered emails.
I have so many of you I want to respond to
but I just haven't had the time.
I appreciated every one.
I printed off all your comments and took them to Mom.
They brought her so much comfort.
We can truly feel your prayers.
The transition has not gone well.
Dad is combative and aggressive.
He is not eating.
After these last hard, hard days
the decision was made to transfer him
to St. Mary's late this afternoon.
They have a senior behavioral clinic.
Psychiatric evaluations are done on geriatric patients.
They are experts at getting the medication right
for the individual patients.
It is something his Alzheimer's unit has done in the past
with excellent results.
He really has declined since the transition last week.
It has been very difficult to see.
We all feel good about this new evaluation process.
The drugs that are prescribed
with late stage dementia are not something
a regular GP deals with daily.
These psychiatrists do.
They assure us they can get Dad
calm, content and eating.
Keep the prayers coming.
