Pawpaw sitting.

I would have probably picked up a shift today and made some money, but mom is concerned about Pawpaw.  He's been a bit wobbly since the day surgery he had on Friday.  His pride has become a serious detriment to his health.  He won't let mom bring down the walker to aid with his mobility.  He complains that the house is too cold but doesn't think to put on an extra layer on clothes.  He sits around watching AMC and TCM all day and doesn't get any excercise.  Doctors tell him to lay off the salt, but he's an addict and nothing tastes right to him without it.  Thus, I am watching over a 70yr old who behaves like a 7yr old.

How do you reason with an unreasonable man?
