It's hard to tell what's going on in Pop's head.
Whatever it is, he's in control.
I had long chats with his attending physician & nurse today.
Both are resigned to cutting Pop loose to decide for himself to get motivated about building his strength back or not.
He wants to watch TV and be waited on.
He asks for things that are in his reach, but won't reach for them.
He won't order his meals.
He won't get up without 3 people assisting, but doesn't help at all to lift himself.
He'll tell you that he wants to do physical therapy, but refuses when the therapist or nurse comes to get him up.
Nobody is going to make Pop do anything he doesn't want to do.
Why he doesn't want to help himself only he can answer. And he ain't sayin'.
Anyone willing to poke him with a motivational stick, PLEASE DO IT!!
We are out of tactics.
