She will be alert and eating one day and then maybe for the next 2 or 3 days she cannot stay awake and is practically comatose. Then she will perk up the next day and want to do the dishes and read the newspaper! She doesn't want to take a bath, brush her teeth, change her Depends (thank heavens for those things), or get up to go to the bathroom, definitely will not eat, only Ensure.
I take her to her doctor and I look like a liar! She acts fine and her tests show nothing. I am at wits end! My husband and I have stayed by her side for weeks, believing she has all the signs of passing. He even told me I need to prepare myself. She has vascular dementia from a couple falls and brain surgeries to drain the pooled blood from the brain to relieve the pressure.
I have NO clue what is going on with her and I think her doctor is "stumped" also. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas as to what may be going o or even knows for sure, I would greatly appreciate it I would especially appreciate someone to "chit-chat" with, because I have ulcers from this. I am an only child with no relief and comparing notes with someone who has experienced this or knows someone that has would be so much appreciated. Thanks so much!
