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.

It has come to light that he has been having - without warning - rectal 'explosions' over the past six months..maybe longer. It's been revealed that Dr scheduled a colonostomy quite a while back but daddy began to feel better and cancelled the appointment. Symptoms have become so severe that another appointment is scheduled and he claims he will show up for it...tho not go under as he wants to know what's going on. I have advised him to go under. He is also exhausted all the time, can barely stay awake yet claims he is sleepless every night - for reasons I can not ascertain, and has lost weight. He is 83. I am going back there this coming Friday. I fear the worst.
