Sleeps most of day and night, doesn't eat or drink, dementia is worse. She was getting around fine. ? 2 weeks ago today Mom began to deteriorate. She said she was breathing good. This week I took her to PCP (Mom asked to go too) because she had labored breathing and was Not eating/drinking.
PCP said she has heart failure, rattling in lungs. Put her on heart meds, seroquel for sleeping because she wasn't at all and for anxiety, crying and screaming and lasik and pottasium for inflammation lower extremities . She sleeps all day unless I wake her up. Then, she falls off back to sleep quickly. I know meds are probably adding to the sleepiness but w/o it she is nuts/uncontrollable.
Today, she only ate a pack of PB crackers and strawberry ensure. Nothing else. I cook everything and it doesn't matter. She gets about 6-8oz water maybe daily.
Her next PCP appt is this Tuesday.
I don't know if this is another stage of ALZ or what? I am so concerned. I am worn out etc.
I need some advice, conversation and just plain ole "I care". Anyone got info.? I really appreciate your help and time. Hope your Sunday is the best ever. Love
