Yesterday

Postby Scorpion » April 14th, 2015, 8:39 am

was my pappy's 88th birthday.
The family went to visit after dinner.
We took a couple of Conways Irish Ale to sip while visiting and pops eyes lit up so I asked him if he wanted some.
(He has alzheimers and is nearly bedridden and has been monitored by hospice for the past 10 months) Anyway, he said YEAH!
So, I got a cup and a straw and poured some.
He sucked it down.
Poured more.
Sucked that down.
Needless to day, he consumed the whole bottle in short order.
Lifes simple pleasures. :D

I think he'd have had another if we'd brought more. :P
A man wants to have sex or he doesn't.
If he doesn't, its like trying to put a marshmallow into a parking meter.

Glad to hear your dad had fun. Right now, the most important thing is to enjoy him and to have him enjoy you and the things he can enjoy about living. Sounds like a happy family day!

One of the hospice nurses called yesterday to update me or answer question I may have.
Informerd her of his enjoyment of the beer.
She said whatever he likes, at this point, let him have it within reason of course.
Time to put 6 pack in his fridge. :D

I had two grandparents who suffered from Alzheimer's. I know how nice it was to still make memories with them as their disease progressed :)
