Forlorn to be comforted

Friday 3 December 2010, 12.29am HKT

JUST LISTEN to this:

“He just sits there all day long, not having the TV on, the lights out well into the night, not reading or watching or listening to anything.

He doesn’t snack on anything anymore, just drinking that stupid glass of water and nothing else. He doesn’t give a shit what he eats or what he’s given to eat.

He just sits there, from the time he wakes up till it’s time to bed.

When we come in, he looks at us, and for a split second, it’s like he’s looking at strangers, then he goes back to just sitting there.

He turns on the TV, I think really for our benefit more than anything else because we can see he’s not watching TV at all.

‘How’s about a day trip outta here? Game?’

‘It’s okay, you go ahead. Just bring back pictures to see.’

I don’t know if this is happening because of his Parkinson’s or something else. We’ve never seen him like this, and it’s scaring us, this.”
