Hi, the first slip on the ice was five days ago. The fall down the stairs was last night. He says he has no headache or problems with his vision as he did just after the first fall. Physically,his back is quite quite painful ans I cannot tell if he is suffering from lack of balance or if he is grabbing things for support because of pain. He is irrational and has done some things that are far out of character. He has glazed eyes and he seems quite dazed, but this could be alcohol (he hides it from me).
He had an alcoholic seizure three or four days before the first slip. He is an alcoholic.
