My dad had his second knee replacement (first one a few months ago) Monday. Talked to him yesterday, seemed really groggy but ok otherwise. We only talked a few minutes. Tried to call him today, no answer, figured he was still out of got. I got a call from my sister today (I knew it wasn’t good because my sister and I don’t call each other often). She said she visited my Dad today.
He couldn’t remember where he lived, that my dog Dodger died 3 years ago, that my mom has been bed ridden for about 3 years now. Didn’t remember that I am working now and don’t live home anymore. Pretty sad because my mom has dementia also, bad enough that she cant go to the bathroom on her own anymore. The last thing my sister was told, when my dad called her was that “he had to go to a meeting about his brain”. This was earlier this afternoon before she visited.
I just pisses me off so much that when she was in the hospital she didnt even ask a doctor what was going on. I was so mad I didnt even yell at her, I was in disbelief.
I guess I just dont know what I would do if my Dad has dementia now too…
Anyone ever seen this happen before?
I really feel absolutely lost and alone…And like I just want to give up. Im tired to taking all these hits in life.
