Thank you for your response. I was home (I live about 2 hours away from Dad), this weekend, noting that Dad, again, was confused. However, he reverts back to "normalcy". He mourns the loss of my mother, and his two sons do nothing to help ie: see him, talk to him, and he says now I have lost my boys. I have talked to both brothers, and they just get angry with me and do less, if that is possible. I encourage Dad to get out, to talk to people, to go to church. He does not want to do these things. He has had a check up at the doctor's office, the doc put him on Xanax.. a small dosage and mg. to help him through this grief. I am concerned about the confusion, and the enormous amount of grief, however, I did lose my husband 7 years ago and I do remember how terrible the grief was. I thank you for your response it was most helpful to me.
