They committed Dad today.
He has been getting worse, y'all know that. Well his hallucinations have been getting out of control, there were the ninjas attacking on horseback, then he was stabbed in the chest and needed a lung surgeon, then he witnessed something and a killer was in the house and was trying to kill him. The last one he called 911 twice and I told them he has dementia but they had to check it out and had to make a report.... don't blame them. just doing their jobs...BUT now he is committed, by the state. TX ... what does that mean exactly? its a mandatory one week stay possibly two weeks, I LOVE that I wont have to clean up poo or pee for that time but what happens now? can they place him directly after that? will he come home, they didn't even talk to us about it really, just came asked some questions and bam... he was in the van going a town away. I'm not sure if I should be relieved (cuz I am that he will be getting full time care with proper meds and someone other than me being a witness to things) or if I should be scared, what will they do now? take his house take everything and put him in a nasty "home" that will make him end his days neglected and alone?
