how often do you hear of the local "Police" picking up your 83 year old dad at 2:30 in the morning???
Hey y'all.....I need your prayers! Some very hard decisions are going to have to be made Soon about the care of my dad.....
His Alzheimer's is progressing and it is so very heartbreaking. The sad thing is, during the daytime hours, he does fairly well. It's the night time hours that causes him so much confusion.
Last night, one of our local police officers picked him up about a mile from his house. He was wearing only his underwear and T-shirt, with NO shoes on.
Who knows, what he could have been thinking of!! He knocked on a door and when the lady came to the door, he wanted to know if there was a bed that he could sleep in for the night!
Of course, she told him NO and told him to go down the road to another house. The police got there before he got to the next house. Thankfully, they put him in the car and let him rest, until they could figure out where he belonged.
He didn't exactly know where he lived, so the police phoned a guy that works with my brother and he came and helped get him back in the house.
I knew nothing of this until early this morning!!
My niece (who lives with my dad) did not hear him open the door. She was sleeping and he just opened that door and out he went. So, as you can guess....today, we will be making some decisions that will assure us that he is safe.
I have replayed several scenarios that could have happened, but I must not go there. I just have to move forward and do what we have to do to prevent something like this from happening again.
I thank the Lord that my dad is safe this morning..
I do ask for your prayers.......
