Day 706 Why do MEN always think everything can be fixed....
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
I called my brothers today about the ER visit with my dad yesterday and told them about his desire to die. They of course are going to come and fix it. They don't think dad should wait 3 weeks to be seen at the VA. How about we give the drugs a chance to work before we rush him into anything else. The VA called me today and I told them he seemed to be doing a bit better than last night and was much less crabby. They told me they would keep tabs on us and if we needed to come in sooner they would arrange that. We will also be talking to a social worker about getting dad some more support. My brothers saw that as a way to get him to stop driving. Jeez don't throw the whole mess at him at once. He's having a lot of problems with this becoming sick thing already. They just want him to be an invalid.
Enough said. I did go into town to get his drugs this morning. Stopped in to see them and check on them and then I came home took a Xanax and curled up on the couch. That was about it. I couldn't have handled much else.
Except I think the heat is bothering the dog. He threw up today and has the runs now. The heat is horrid and we have 2 more days yet this week. UGH>
