A description of the experience

 My father is 83 years old.  A couple of years ago he went into the hospital for a vascular bypass in his leg.  Of course, because it was a surgical procedure, they treated him with antibiotics.  Reading all of your emails horrified me because the very same hallucinations are exactly what he experienced, in the hospital and even once he got home (he has lived with me for the past 9 years).  He would tell of children throwing balls down the hall and angels sitting on the foot of his bed. ….  Evidently, the antibiotics in an elderly person will cause the ammonia level in his system to increase dramatically, and that is what causes the hallucinations…………….
