Dad's speech is getting worse, a lot of the time he doesn't talk because he can't be bothered (on a recent trip to hospital they were surprised to learn that he COULD speak as he hadn't bothered trying with the staff), when he does talk it's quite whispery and he has to repeat himself a few times before we can work out what he's saying. Then he gets frustrated. However when I was visiting him today he twice managed to say, loudly and clearly "Can you stop rabbiting?" to me!! *sigh* Sometimes it feels like there is no logic to it.
And sometimes I wonder why I bother, but that's another story.
