In which Sly is back in the hospital because he is dehydrated because he won't drink water and I tell Primo just take him the bourbon it can't hurt him at this point

And Sly is back in the hospital.

This rollercoaster is never going to end.

    I got a late-night call from Jack, who had gotten a call from the rehab center. (We're not sure why they didn't call me; maybe because he had a local number.) Dad was sent to the ER with very low blood pressure, and he has been admitted to the hospital again for dehydration and probable C. diff colitis.

    This is good in that he'll get the care he needs, but I will have to retrieve all his stuff from the rehab center again and we don't know how long he will be in the hospital. I am despondent again.

    He said that he does not want to be resuscitated if his heart stops or if his breathing stops. I think he has lost all motivation to get better.

  1. Sigh...sorry Goldie and Primo. It's hard watching someone give up like that.

    1. Yeah, you don't want to see someone just surrender. There is so much to live for. Life can be so good if you want.

  2. Sly may say that he doesn't like the taste of the rehab water, but I'd bet good money that he's doing what my grandfather did - reducing his liquid intake as a way of trying to control his bladder.

    Sigh. Another day, a new load of crap. Sorry guys.

    1. AC, you are absolutely right. I just asked Primo and he said that was it.

  3. Oh, how sad. My sympathy to Primo, it must be so hard seeing his father like this.

    1. It has been really hard on him, emma, even though his dad has been a jerk. I think there is always this hope that a bad parent will wake up and realize how awful he has been and will apologize.

    2. Reading backwards, i do not think you feel like they will wake up, but rather in your heart of hearts you truly can not think my parent is a bad person. Subconstiously you make up excuses. IT's the life they had, they haven't been loved by their parents and they do not know better, they are old and sad, they are from a different time, they love me but they don't know how to express it.
      Apologize? That will never happen, that requires some insight. At most, sly witll : think oh well how nice my son primo takes care of me in this awful situation, good job of me raising him like that
