my grandfather...

Friday, May 22, 2009
When I was still a kid, My grandfather is an old and strong stall seller. He still can manage to push the heavy stall to few miles away. He sell 'Air Tebu' (sugar cane water) and some other junk food at the bus station, Kulim. He likes to smoke for tat time. I used to sit beside him (on the floor, he's on the chair) to see his mouthful of smokes being 'flew' out of his mouth. I asked him to change some pattern too. is very enjoying and funny. Due to I sit lower than him, I hardly could smell the so called cigarette smell. (a little bit la) I am still healthy now! hahaha.

Time after time, He is getting older, and I am getting older too (shd be young adult). His health problem started. Due to he is a smoker, he tends to cough and so on... (trying to warn all the smokers). After that we shifted to KL. His sickness is increasingly bad. He then had stroke and almost cant recognised us all. After that, he have mild Dementia- known as Alzheimer's disease.

Then I could see he is suffer a lot, not only that, I pity on my parent, uncle and grandma who took care of him. That isn't the way like what TVB drama shows, normal memory lost would not bring any trouble to us. However, he tends to confuse (example, wear the wrong side of clothes, tot that the dustbin is toilet bowl), got some illusions (example, he complain he see some 'others' things, heard what they talking, talk to himself), get upset easily (when we pointed him to go sit down, he could not understand us, we say it 2nd time, he tot we scolding him, then he get mad! and he is trying to commit suicide, like tying up himself--which normally won't happen coz he dono how to tie anymore), and now, he dono what are we talking already, we cant communicate with him. He likes to eat medicine! (tat's wat we control him) then alwaz complain dizzy, as he just wan medicine (we gave him calcium instead of panadol, once swallow, he stop complaining and he feel he is strong again).

There are many stories that I'd cut short. misplacing something really made my mum upset, coz he would just simply pee.... haih..

Thare are 7 stages of Alzheimer. (http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_stages_of_alzheimers.asp)
He is shown to be, the 6th stages already.

Currently he is admitted in the hospital. every time he admit in the hosp, there are great happening in the wad. He tends to pull out every pipe tat attach to him. He is in pain, but still doing so, until the doc tied him up. He refused to eat, I not sure he is refused or cannot eat. so doc need to pipe in the solutions. He make noise (shout) if my grandma went back home and disturb other patients...etc

In short, I hope he get well soon.
