For the past five days, Tom hollars to me when he wakes up and is ski wompus on his bed. His legs are hanging down and I don't know how long he has been that way. It has been extremely difficult to get him up and then he is really shaky. (I've even had him sit on the edge of the bed and stamp his feet to wake them up). We manage showering & dressing, a quick breakfast (mostly he can't figure out how to feed himself and the meal ends up on the floor). When I get him to his chair to watch T.V. he instantly falls asleep. He won't open his eyes and seems to be hallucinating somewhat or dreaming out loud. When I get him down for a nap after a quick lunch, we repeat the same process all over again. His slurred gait is even more exaggerated and he has no depth perception. I have been trying to keep him hydrated, but he doesn't seem to know how to do anything. Any suggestions?

  1. Is he getting his pills on time, have you thought about giving him a boost of caffine, again.
