Care Center and Stuff

We finally had a night free from baseball and scouts last night. I took my ex to look at a care facility that isn’t too far from our house. Amazingly, we were really impressed.

There aren’t any rooms available right now but I have a social worker trying to find a home for him.

I called the nurse that had been over to my house yesterday and she is really concerned with his safety.

He is confused with what day it is so he is taking more medicine than what he should.

He started calling me up saying that the home phone and his cell phone are “broken.” Over the weekend, we came home and he had his cell phone torn apart.

I mentioned this to the nurse and a red flag went up as they are now concerned he might not be able to call for help if he needed it.

I called his brother that is retired and told him the situation. Don’t you think he could offer to take his own brother to his house????? Hell, they don’t even come by to visit.

I know it’s not easy, but wtf, it’s his brother.

The nursing staff is getting rather nervous as they are the ones dispensing the medication. They certainly wouldn’t be liable if anything were to happen, would they?

All of his meds are now in a lock box and I am putting out his daily dosages every morning. But, he is still accessible to the morphine and that is their biggest concern.

The doctor is coming over today. I’m anxious to hear what he says………….
