Sister is a nurse and telling dad what meds to take or not take but she is 9 hours away and has not seen dad in months (has visited here once) and does not know his doctor. Dad lives with me, we have the same Dr. I have consulted with him. Dad says my sister told him it is OK for him to stop his cholesterol med. She tells him what he should and shouldn't do. Dad tells me what he thinks I want to hear. He does not take his diabetic meds as well. Of course he is over weight and sugars are up and down but will not listen to me. I am the one who deals with the problems. Dads sugar was a 50 and he decided that was a good time to drive to get a hamburger in the evening. After he told me that of course I spoke to him very sternly about driving when his sugars were too low and eat at home. He will not listen to me. What do I know (I deal with medical emergencies all the time and been in the medical field for over 20 years). Of course sister knows everything (No, we do not talk because it takes 2 people to listen not one just talking). I have no idea what to do except to send Dad to live with her for a while to see how life is on this side. The last time she had him she let him drive 8 hours while completely dehydrated. Yes I had to take him to the ER and give him 2 bags of fluid.
