Sue, he's really zonked most of the time -- leaning to one side, mouth wide open, completely unresponsive. It takes myself and a carer to rouse him enough to eat, still with his eyes closed. But golly, does he enjoy his food!Do you know if John is really asleep or is he just closing his eyes. I say this because he is obviously eating well and he couldn't do this if was really asleep.
Dear Skye - how sad it is to read these posts. Not sure what to say cos it is hard to know just what you are experiencing at this particular moment. The 'quote' really pulled me - it is so bl.... awful - just wish it could all change.not even when I kiss him. Until now, he's always kissed me back.
Gosh that was quick, I had no idea that the drugs passed out of your system so quickly! At least you now know it was the drugs and not another phase that was making John so lethargic.John is now off antibiotics and Quetiapine, and he was certainly much more alert. The only trouble is, he's also more agitated, and doesn't like to sit in a chair. He wants to be either walking, or lying on his bed, and tries to get up and walk on his own. He's not steady enough for that, so he's going to have more falls.
