Dad update

Dad's been restrained again. He's paranoid and panicky. He told Jenn "You've got to get me out of here. They're holding me against my will." He's in a short term memory loop, only remembering a couple of minor things, like being restrained, but not having a catheter. Nurse says it's common for how ill he was, and thinks it's likely he'll recover lucidity eventually. He's been sedated to help him sleep, but he still wakes up, loops, and goes back to sleep.

It's what we call a Brandonian loop, but that's another story, except that the Brandonian loop took about 36 hours to break out of, so I'm guessing late tomorrow we should expect to see longer stretches of consciousness. Basically though, He needs a good 10 hours of sleep first. He has no breathing tube to wake up to, but the restraints are tweaky. We'll see how things go.
