  • 6 months ago we moved my dad into a level 4 long term care facility.
  • 2 weeks ago he was assessed for indications of depression
  • Last week the results came back from the evaluation, early onset mixed dementia and a UTI, he was started on a course of Cipro
  • Couple of days N/V and O2 Therapy my mom decides that yesterday evening she's gonna spend the night with dad and sleep in the lounger in his room.
  • Being very restless around midnite my dad looks at my mom and says, "I'm Scared". My mother gently asks, "Of what?" "What will happen tomorrow if I don't wake up?" My mom said "Don't worry, either way everything's gonna be alright." and he drifts off to sleep.
How the hell did he know?
