How do you force a man of 61 to go get a sleep study done so he can be formally diagnosed with apnea, get a CPAP and live for longer?
We've (my family) have known it's apnea for years now (we can hear him snore and then stop breathing for a good amount of time, sometimes until my mom nudges him), and we just can't convince him he needs to go in for a study. I love my dad and want him to stick around for a good while longer, but I know that the apnea is taking away from his life expectancy.
I told my mom that we could try to borrow some cuffs and leg irons from the cops to drag him in, but obviously that wouldn't really work. So what can we do to get him to understand just how bad it really is?
