So, there's that

Things with Dad are pretty bad. His tremors are really bad, and he's been angry and abusive to the nurses and me when he wakes up, because he's disoriented and confused. He wouldn't let me feed him the oatmeal they brought, so he burned his chest when he slopped it all over himself. I mean an actual burn. He's in constant pain, so he's just mean, and they had to tie his hands down to keep him from pulling everything out, and then he became abusive to all of us about that.

I'm out in the hall, listening to a family who just lost their dad try to call folks. I am so far past misery I don't even care that I'm in pain myself and feel like the progress I've made on my back is now all gone. This is feeling so much like my mom and my sister. I don't think he's going to get better, and am pretty sure it's going downhill from here.

I hope I can at least read my story and give feedback to my author tomorrow. Yuletide author, if you read this, I hope I won't neglect you, but just in case, thank you ahead of time for giving me something to look forward to right now.

So, so sorry to hear about this. Thinking of you and your dad and wishing for the best.

If you need anything, even if you just want someone to come and sit with you a bit at the hospital, please let me know.

I'm so sorry. This just sounds heartbreaking for you, no matter what time of year.

There's so little we can do from here, but if there is anything, PM me or email me.

Much love.

Oh, Gwyn, how awful. Here's hoping this is all just due to the bump on the head, and he'll be fine in a few days. I'm so sorry, sweetheart; you don't deserve to go through this after everything else you've been through. *hugshugs*

Oy. More than sucks. I echo the earlier comments that suggest taking a break (I'd recommend a short walk for fresh air) and I am lighting a candle for a speedy and complete recovery for your Dad. -em.

All I can do is send hope that there is a cease in the agony...

His of course, but yours especially.

Much love to you.

It's never a good time for something like this. I send my condolances as I've been through something like this myself.

Take Care...

My heart goes out to you. Your dad's in pain and confused, so I wouldn't worry too much about any hurtful things he might say. All you can do is be there for him, but please don't forget to take care of yourself as well.
