Scenes from my father’s 81st birthday:

  • He is chronically argumentative and frustrated.
  • He is staying in bed all the time. He has not left it, other than for bathroom breaks, in two days.
  • He is not eating, nor drinking nearly enough.
  • He continues to lose weight.

My mother is concerned of dehydration and is pushing him to have an IV tomorrow to restore his fluid balance.

Oxygen is due to be delivered momentarily.
