In Sept of 2019, my dad was in the hospital for about 2-3 weeks & was then told that he can no longer live on his own. He has alot of ailments including COPD exacerbation, prostate & colorectal cancer, diabetes, CHF, pulmonary hypertension, etc. I talked to my siblings & asked them if dad could stay with them. They gave their reasons as to why he couldn't. I took him in to avoid the nursing home. Well, I'll be John Brown! Every week I took my dad to the hospital, missing work (finally got my FMLA), him being non-compliant & argumentative with me and medical professionals regarding his medications & wherewithal for things that helped to assist with his care. I moved him into my one bedroom apartment that I shared with a younger sibling of the same mom, different dad. I gave him my bedroom while I slept on a airbed in my dining area. He had no respect for my home by which caused many arguments & uneasiness betwixt the three of us. I tried to make him comfortable as best we could because my sister was kind enough to help with cleaning and cooking for him. This included food he constantly dropped and threw down, poop splattered over the toilet cabinets tub, floor, wall....just gross!!! My house and car smelled like urine. He complained about everything we did. "We don't cook" and didnt like the way we cleaned even though we cleaned up after him. He called 911 on us because we wouldn't get him "Soul Food" and advised the 911 operator that's what he wanted. The hospital got tired of seeing him multiple times a week and suggested skilled nursing. So he stayed in that particular hospital for a couple of weeks until he went to the first skilled nursing facility. The trips back & forth were tiresome but wanted to make sure my dad was ok because he is several hands full. After He gave them hell, he was then transferred to the most recent skilled nursing to transition to residential. From the day after Thanksgiving 2019 until today he has been in the hospital consecutively. My dad called me multiple times while at these different facilities to tell me that he was dying just so that I would go up there & sit with him. He tried to taunt & guilt trip me with his death knowing I also took care of my mom while she was sick before she passed away. Before Sept. my dad was pretty much estranged. Even with his cruel treatment, I went above and beyond for him. He has played on my heart strings as much as possible just for me to do what he wanted. I'm forgiving because life is short. Within these last few weeks the voicemail messages multiplied of him telling me "I'm killing him", "come & watch me die", "you're making me crazy putting me here & asked the nurse to tell me to watch him die. He also called the administrators there everyday doing the same. He called 911 on his nurse for a crazy reason. He said he didnt want to be there & I need to come & take him home. His medicare at 100% ended on Feb. 3 & was to pay $176/day that he was aware of & prepared for but still didnt want to pay. My dad was so upset at being in the facility. I wrote the check that he knew I had to the facility to pay for his copay while at the facility. So, the next day I go to the facility to take batteries he requested for his oximeter. Once I got there I was moments late for my dads suicide attempt, by stabbing himself with knives & scissors & told the nurses I was the reason for the attempt he doesnt want to be there & the payment made to the facility was stolen & he doesnt want to live anymore. This broke my heart as I have done all I know to do to help even amid the abuse taken. He was taken to a hospital for a psych eval only for me to find out all of this craziness that took place was apart of his plan of doing a chargeback on the check and then calls me to tell me I need to help him find a place to stay?? At this point, I am all cried out & stressed out, when he passes away naturally or forcefully, I just dont know if tears will be shed! #TIMEFORLOVEFROMAFARFARFARDISTANCE!
