My father just recently had two strokes. Its been really hard for all of us and we have all been on an emotional rollercoaster. But, during the night, my father turns into a MONSTER! He cant sleep, has anxiety and just goes off on EVERYBODY. He is in the hospital and it usually starts when he has to get up and go to the bathroom, but needing help ofcourse. He gets confused and cant remember where he is at. Someone in the family usually stays the night with him because he cant be left alone. But anyway, he usually goes off on a family member about how horrible they are, curses at them, tells them horrible things and just goes on and on. It happend lastnight from 10pm until about 630 the next morning. He cat naps during that time but everytime he wakes up....it starts all over again. Is that normal????????? The nurses told me it was for that to happen during the night. My dad honsetly doesnt remember saying bad things, but he remembers keeping who ever stays with him up all night. I need some advice to pass onto the family!!!! Thank you!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
