My MIL's apt is connected to our home - separate heat - separate thermostats - THANK GOODNESS! Hubby installed a thermometer so that we can monitor the temp in her apt. Twice in the last week we have found her living room temerature VERY high. Once it was 90 and was 90 all night long. Just now I checked because I took something in to give to her and I could barely breathe. The temp was 86. She says she was just getting 'comfortable' and thinking how good it felt.
Are these temperatures 'healthy?' Could they be dangerous? What about dehydration? It is a struggle to get fluids into her as it is. Should we let her doctor know about this?
I gave her a Snugli but she refuses to use a throw - the Snugli is in a plastic bag next to her chair. She would rather turn up the heat.
Answers? Anyone? THE SAGA CONTINUES....................
