Dad after three visits to neuro asked me what Parkinson's is and has been told several times he has PD. Last nite he asked me what it is, and says he doesn't have it.
Noticed his lite on in his room long into the nite and he was laying there with his pants and shirt on passed out - breathing seemed heavy. This a.m. - I asked him why he had the lite on (and, usually all I get is a YELL as I'm not allowed to ask questions) But I talked louder so he backed down. Said a possum got in his bedroom (doggie door) last night (a horrible storm was going on) and it got into the bath tub (now this man can barely use his hands to close the front door) and his meds cause hallucinations - and then he said the possum got into the bath tub, he was able to rope
it and pull it outside. I asked him where it was and he said it was outside the gate and he will not talk any further. I looked everywhere - I can't find it. Yet, I looked in the bathtub, and there is lots of mud with a shovel and it looks like he really did rope a possum. I hope he is this strong, and I can't figure out if this is a hallucination or not! GO FIGURE!! His dog that sleeps with him did not bark or anything and he barks at everything ---- GO FIGURE!!! At least I'm laughing at this one, and will keep my bedroom door closed -
NANC --- this sound like the coffemaker story. Don't know if he's had another stroke or what --- still waiting on stress test results. At least I'm laughing and not drowning in misery on this one! Every day it's a new event - the saga goes on!
Love & Prayers ....... Vickie
