Rapid decline of husband with dementia.
Since about Thanksgiving, husband has had more episodes of not being able to express what he wants to say, difficulty putting on clothes the right way, i.e., top or bottom, zippers, buttons, etc. Nights have been filled with shouting out, kicking, etc.
Today a friend asked him to go with him out to breakfast and on a 40 mile trip to pick up a car part. I thought it was an answer to my prayers, as it is so very rare that he gets to do anything like that (unless it's with me). When they got home, the friend dropped him off in front of our house, but instead he went to the house on the opposite side of the street. The friend yelled at him that he was going the wrong way, so he turned and sent another way to a neighbor's, then realized where home was, and came on home.
After he came in, he told me about all of this, plus, he had an accident with his bowels while in a store, but didn't tell our friend. Of course he is embarrassed.
I am wondering just what stage of FTD this is ~ middle?
He is on Aricept and Elavil besides his usual bp meds and vitamins.
