So a dear friend of mine went to visit FIL yesterday for me and she says it's no wonder he is foggy and has no appetite as he is on so many drugs. She instant messaged me about it and said she sat with him and forced him to eat. We talked to Dad and told him that he needs to look up some of the drugs and question if he really needs them. That is one of the things that has been so wonderful about my FIL is that he has had such a sharp mind. So we got an email from him this morning that said that the doctor prescribed Calcort. FIL said after googling it, it would make you shake in your shoes. So he told them he was going to pass on it. So hopefully he can take charge a bit and stop some of the drugs that I am sure are effecting his appetite. It's so hard to manage being so far away but at least I do feel he is in good hands. My girlfriend will check in on him again today. She said the place is wonderful where he is so that is good.
I would go home but we are trying to stay until I can go to Social Security on November 25th as that is when I can apply for benefits and I have to be in the states to do it. They make you work hard to get the money that you put into the system for so many years. Geez.
I do hope all of you are well and having a good week.
Have a terrific day.
