This blog is an attempt to memorialize our parents and right the wrongs done to them, and hopefully, by making readers aware of what can happen, we can protect other elderly parents who could fall victim to their own family members.

10.5.05 Barbara email/stroke
Am leaving Tuesday, 11th, for a visit with my parents. They get worse by the minute. Daddy showed up at my brother's door last Thursday at 6:30 p.m., asking if they knew where my mother was. Dad had been visiting her in the hospital and about noon said he wasn't feeling well and went downstairs to see his Dr. Dr ran an EKG and pronounced my dad fine. He was actually in the process of having a stroke. He wandered around for hours trying to find his car, and then more hours trying to find his way home. The hospital is 7 miles away. He has no memory of that day and several others surrounding. When I say the Dr's down there are beyond stupid, I am not exaggerating. If you ever wonder where the bottom 10 percent of the worst med graduating class is, just ask me. Also have to bring back the dog they inherited from my dad's sister last month. She died just days short of 94. They are in no way able to care for a dog. Will be gone Tuesday to Tuesday.
