Hallucinations — 6 Comments

  1. DB, you are amazing! Unfortunately, I know exactly what you’re talking about, and it is so very difficult, the transfer from chair to bed or vice versa.

    My father in law had hallucinations just like the ones you mention. He had had many falls, and had hit his head more than once.

    It turned out he had fluid on the brain, and a shunt had to be placed.

    He would try to escape trucks and elephants, too, before the shunt was placed!

  2. Daddy just doesn’t trust anyone well enough to let them “dance” him from one seat to another. What we have found works better is to get him up from chair to walker and then we can get him to turn the walker and we can scoot the wheelchair under him. That won’t work for the car, but it does everywhere else, thank goodness.

    Mama had some of the same hallucinations with Alzheimer’s, Marion. They seem to be universal, if you live long enough!

  3. DB,
    Marion’s right–you are amazing. You articulate your struggles so well, I feel like I’ve seen you in action! You will surely have jewels in your heavenly crown for the effort and devotion you’re giving your Dad. Sending prayers your way…

  4. I appreciate the prayers, MM, as we can certainly use them. As for crowns, well, that’s another matter. So many people deal with situations far worse. Have you read RUTH’s blog about a million stories out there? If you haven’t, you should.

  5. I appreciate how difficult this must be for you. I hope that today is a better day for you…it must be so worrying and my heart goes out to you. What a special person you are
