Dads currently in hospital on a section 2 and being assesed, yesterday for the first time in weeks i took him out of the ward he is on to the main part of the hospital for a coffeee and Bagguette, he seemed to be very unaware of his surroundings, where he was or what he was doing, when he was eating he was literally falling asleep at the same time as eating.
We walked back to his ward and i thought he might have a nap but no, wandering round, picking up bits of paper off the floor, generally acting very strange, he then got upset and said he felt sad.
I called just now to see how he was because he had been so strange and they said he was up all night acting totally crazy, trying to take curtains down, trying to walk through objects, staff etc??? just ranting like a crazy person, he is now shattered and falling asleep in his chair, he apparently was falling asleep in his breakfast.
They gave him lorazapam last night at 7.30 with no effect! he is also taking risperodol 0.5mg which he started this week. They have said he has no infections although they will check everything again today just to be sure.
Im really worried for him and a bit at my wits end ...................i guess i just want my Dad back.
