GAH!

Social Service lady comes in to see Papaw. He fights tooth and nail all the way. He does NOT want the bed. He does NOT want the cane. He told her absolutely NOT to everything.

Plus he fought the night staff last night - kicking, punching and screaming at them. Its even noted in his chart that he cussed one of them out.

Mom said she's staying the night with him. I told her to tell him in no uncertain terms that he WILL be getting a bed and he WILL be getting a cane.

That if he fights me on this one I'm throwing out all of the crutches he's accumulated (I think he has 12 pair, no, that's not a joke either). If he fights me on this I'm tossing out that chair too.

I told her that if she could not stand up to him and tell him how it was going to be then I would and he most certainly would NOT like me on that one.

I want to keep him around a bit longer. I want him to get his wish of living to be 100. If I have to have a nervous breakdown in the process to make it all happen, by God it will!

Where did I learn to be this stubborn, this tenacious? Take a good hard look at a 97 year old man, then you will figure it out.
