We thought we'd hidden the medi-set well enough. Well, this morning FIL found it and took all of the medication left in it. Not all at once, he'd take the morning dose, then forget and take the noon dose, then forget and take the evening dose (just in case the other compartments had been left empty on accident)..... All told, he took 3 days worth of blood pressure medication, anti-depressant, and anti-tremor medication (sodium butisol for his familiar tremor). The attendant got there at 1 (her normal time), and found FIL acting very confused and strange - she called us and then called the ambulance. He'll be fine. It'll take a few days for the confusion to wear off. Until then either Husband or I will stay with him when the attendants aren't there. We've locked away the actual pill bottles because FIL was getting them confused - taking anti-depressant instead of the anti-tremor. And we've had the attendants give him his meds - the medi-set is to make things easier for them, they also have a written schedule of what medications he takes at what times. Now we'll need to get a separate lock box that only the attendants have access to so we can lock the medi-set away as well. I keep thinking that things have stabilized and we can relax just a bit and get back to our own lives. Then it all takes a sudden turn and we have to re-adjust. I know FIL isn't doing any of this maliciously - he forgets things - but I can't help feeling annoyed by yet another intrusion. And I know that feeling isn't fair to him - I love him. Monday, when the office opens, I need to call and schedule the attendants for more hours. Which means another juggling act with our budget which is already straining. MIL died without signing her will, so the bulk of their finances are tied up until that's settled. It also means another argument with FIL, because he doesn't think he needs any of these people around. I just want to cry.
