Take my socks off...

Started by

Last night Mom was tremoring pretty badly and asked me to take her socks off (she gets VERY hot when she is tremoring) and kept calling me and my husband into her room to take them off even though they were already off. We did this for about an hour or so. The last time I did it, I was going back up the stairs when she said "this isn't unusual. I used to call you and your sister into my room when you were little to sweep the flies and spiders out from under my bed" Do what? She remembered this morning asking me to take the socks off more than once.

I did give her some extra medication for her tremors, but it wasn't enough to cause her to act like she did. I wonder if she is having some TIA's. She was tired this morning, but otherwise seemed okay.

I hate Parkinson's and dementia!!
