I took Mom for a checkup today. She is down to 90 pounds, BMI 16.5 and blood pressure at one point was 84/50 and then 70/44. She is skipping breakfast, not even making herself coffee. She goes without food from 5pm dinner to lunch the next day at noon,(which she barely eats) and unless she eats a few spoons of yogurt or sips of ensure she starves and dehydrates (I provide snacks all the time because she doesn't know enough to go to the lunchroom to ask). The doctor is going to try Megace to increase her appetite. AL will have to administer it, and maybe they will be more aware she is not eating considering she lost all the weight on their watch.
I'm taking her to the audiologist next week. Even with new hearing aids, we have to scream to be heard. I guess we will find out then if she has just lost her comprehension, or there is something wrong with them.
I'm doing what I can, but I am so glad she is in AL now.
