Sorry guys and girls, I'm in need of some advice again. 80 year old Dad has Alzheimer's and has been admitted to hospital this afternoon in preparation for an op to remove a cancer lump from under his side burns. It's not going to be pleasant as there's is a very high chance he will lose the sight in his left eye and some mouth movement. I fear how someone with Alzheimer's will deal with this and how we are to. The hospital rang me at 9pm to ask if I would go and sit with him as he was trying to go home, and getting aggressive. I arrived to find him thinking he was at work, and was prevented from going home. I got through to him he was in hospital to have an operation, and he seemed to take it all in as he does feel pain from the growth. I know they are short staffed but I'm just frustrated that they can't deal with it, and this is before the operation. Tomorrow he will have tubes coming out his arms etc, so how the hell are they going to deal with that? They wanted me to stay all night, and I can see I may have to tomorrow. It would have helped a little if they had prepared me for this, as I'm in full time employment. I can't expect a 78 year old mum to be with him day and night, but it seems I'll be sleeping at dads bedside for the next few nights. It didn't give me a lot of confidence the way they put dad to bed. He had a cardigan and a pair of trousers over his pyjamas, and that how they were putting him to bed.
