We had another rough night last night. George kept sitting up every hour or so, after coming out of the bedroom around two in the morning. I got him back to bed. He got up around six, but he changed his shirt, underwear, and made an effort to use the bathroom. All things he wouldn't have normally done. He soaked his shirt, but again not as bad as other nights. He then made an effort to try and use the restroom again around nine this morning after getting back to bed. Not bad, I'll take it. I can understand him for the most part, too. So, that's another thing I'm thankful for. Speach therapy called me yesterday and set an appoitment for today. I know it's saturday, but he still needs it, badly.

@LindaOHio Well, that's likely. Be in a hospital long enough, and you lose all sense of time. I know it's happened to George. If someone asks him the date, he can't tell you. Ask him the year.... you'd be surprised what comes out of his mouth. I have to micro-manage George's meds, otherwise he wouldn't take them. Although he did ask about a med. So he does have some awareness of time. And, when asked the time, he was off by fifteen minutes. So, not bad. But we have a clock he can look at for that.

@kaylachan He fell off the porch. When they admitted him, because he doesn't take his meds when he should, his heart was surrounded by fluid and he was in AFIB. Now he's not eating, he's weak, and in the evenings he may get rowdy and hard to understand. At one point they had him in restraints and under sedation. They think he has hospital delirium.
