This all happened close to 4 months ago. Today he is up and walking with out assistance and is physically recovering incredibly fast. But mentally he is stagnating or getting worse. He has problems with fixation (repeats one sentence for 4 hours) and general anxiety (paces around yelling nonsense cause he thinks he is missing something)
Last night the worst yet happened. He got mad during dinner and started grabbing my mom's arm (he has gotten quite strong) so I stepped in and pull his hand off and asked him not to do that. He then proceeded to punch me in the face. While it didn't hurt I was stunned and not quite sure how to act. I just stayed between him and my mom and grandma to make sure they didn't get hurt and for the next 2 hours he "chased" me around the house trying to hit me. He walks slowly so basically it was 2 hours of me walking in front of him keeping an eye on him until he got tired. When I tried to put him to bed he found his old pocket knife and tried to open it and stab me. I just took it out of his hand and asked him why he wanted to do that? He mumbled and went to bed.
The punch didn't hurt and I know he is not in his right mind but my father before the accident would have never done that. EVER. So emotionally it is hard to reconcile the man who is here today with my father. But at the same time I need to be strong to help my mom and help bare the burden of what she has to go through. It's just a little tough right now.
I am hoping that there will be some development and that he will get better and that he might even come back to the dad I used to know.
