Since I have been keeping you all updated on Floyd I figured I would again today.

We had to call 911 this morning....he had fallen and could not get up. I finally told him IF he would go WITH the paramedics to the hospital they could probably expedite the social services as they had still not come out by Friday. SO he agreed. He went. I called after getting his permission to have that girl come out and pick up his cats. He cannot take care of them anymore let alone himself.

So after he left I made sure the cats had some water and food at least for now. I checked his condo. MAN....I think the Department of Health will need to get involved on this one. Not sure how they handle these things. I have never seen anything quite this messy in my life in REAL life. You see things on tv and all but this was unreal. What made it so bad was HUMAN FECES (DIARRHEA) all over the place. I mean he had puddles on the bathroom floor in the both bathrooms, on the doors, on the doorknobs, on the floor in the living room and bedroom, in his bed, on his clothes laying in piles all over and on his robe and shoes. He still had feces on his legs and feet from Tuesday night. There is contaminated food garbage all over. I took out 3 bags of trash ready to go down out for him. That was it and that is ALL I am going to do. It is filthy and someone with special services and cleaning things will have to get in there to clean that place up. It is trashed! I don't think you can even dispose of the carpet if they tore it up as it is contaminated with human crap and pee along with cat poop and pee. I don't think you are allowed to just throw it in the dump or trash dumpster. night and morning again has not gone exactly as planned. Seems to be an ongoing trait this week. However...we highly doubt Floyd will be coming he cannot walk now at all really and he has no bladder or waste control at all is appears. I pray they don't send him home. I think they cannot and I provided the firemen with the social service worker's name and number I talked to last week. Hopefully the staff at the hospital will expedite that and get Floyd into assisted living and taken care of. Other than the groceries we had bought him yesterday and taken to his home he had no other food or anything. Not sure how he had made it for a few days before we did that. Doubt he will be back to eat the rest of this food now so it will get pitched and that is okay if it does. I don't think I would want anything back even if it is had been in the freezer. His fingernails had to have human excrement embedded under them and anything he touched would get contaminated. If he ATE anything then he could get hepatitis. SO....we want to stay clear of all that. I sprayed our landing and rugs outside on the landing and doorbell and doors and myself off with Lysol. I cannot get the picture of human waste out of my mind all over the place in the condo. It was unreal. Hard to believe someone was living like that.

So....that is the latest. I am waiting on a phone call from Cindy the girl who will hopefully get her butt over here and take the cats. They need a better home than where they are living now.
