Is this how my otherwise doing pretty darn well mom is going to die? Vascular dementia from stroke but a really happy camper @ 84. Her quality of life is very good and she is the most functional person in an excellent six person board & care home; enjoys visitors, food, entertainment... Unless she is having a UTI and just gets zonked. Wonderful staff is diligent about cleaning her up (urinary/fecal incontinence), but she has experienced three UTIs in eight weeks. She is resistant to most (all?) antibiotics and Septra either isn't working and/or she just keeps getting new infections. Internet searches made me feel so hopeless. She takes cranberry supplements, probiotics and has only two regular Rx. General health is quite good and she has her mobility w assistance. She has an sharp and excellent doctor who is thinking time for prophalactic antibiotics... BUT won't that stop working too? I know she is going to go sometime and I decided long ago, no heroics for her when the time comes, but does it have to be a damn UTI when everything else is going so good for her? Feeling so so helpless right now. Please know I'll be grateful for any advice, wisdom you might have. Thank you so very much.
