I reposted the question because I asked it in reply to my other thread but got no responses. I may not get any now, but at least I’ll know it wasn’t buried in my previous post. It is strange how she has survived these initial five days. It is as if the intense mental pain has cut through the fog of dementia and bipolar disorder, and she has moments of clarity that I have not seen in years. She and my father were married for 67 years. I am concerned about her surviving the funeral. I will be contacting her psychiatrist to see if he could prescribe her something for that day, but we don’t want her over-medicated. She already takes some powerful medications for her bipolar disorder. She is in a wheelchair, (two person assist), incontinent, and on oxygen also.
