Anyhow, after trying to cheer him up for several months to no avail, I talked to his doc about trying some type of trial w/an anti-depressant pill. And even w/a low dose of 10 mg (normal is 20mg) it seems to have made his outlook not so dour. His leg strength is just about gone, but he's a little bit happier for some reason. Maybe your dad just has to go thru all the stages of grief (denial, anger etc...acceptance) to find some peace. Otherwise just inquire w/his General prac M.D. about something that won't give him bad side effects.
