No one until yesterday could figure out what he had. Got an apt wth the head of the movement disorder clinic yesterday at Shands in Gainesville and he finally figured it out. He is in a rehab facility at the moment and has been there for over 2 weeks. Other than raising his med level and saying he needed more therapy addressed to his condition, is there any reason for me to keep him there. He is very unsteady on his feet and there is no way he can walk alone. Says he trips over his own feet. i have noticed that when he starts walking, he tends to walk faster and faster. He was in the bathroom there yesterday and did well getting there with a walker but when he turned to walk out him almost fell, thank goodness I was with him. I am trying to get a hospital bed at home for him to help him getting up but do I really need it? He is so desperate to get out but I have to have grab bars put in the bathrooms, just ordered them yesterday. Any suggestions anyone? I want him home as well since I think the care he is getting is horrible and he is miserable. What scares me is the falling and from what I have read difficulty with eating and the eye movement issue as this progresses.
