Pat, I hope you can get everything figured out soon. It made me smile to read that Derek had a good birthday, gives me hope that there are still lots of good moments left for my family too. :)

Haven't been on in a few days - Happy Birthday to Derek!
Pat - do you know what he hit when he split his hand? Was it a person or furniture or a wall? You may remember that my dad went through this for a long, long time. The backs of his hands looked like hamburger almost all the time. They tried moving his bed away from the wall, because he usually hit his hands on the wall. Then it was the bed rails. Then it was the table when he was eating, or the wheelchair. We tried adjusting meds but didn't find a satisfactory solution. I hope you are able to find one for Derek. Lynn

Lynn, daughter of 89 year old dad dx with possiblity of LBD, CBD, PSP, FTD, ALS, Vascular Dementia, AD, etc., died Nov. 30, 2010 after living in ALF for 18 months.
