My 75 yo husband had a slow bleed in the brainstem 3 months ago, it is simillar to a stroke in the brainstem. he is also bedridden, due to a broken hip, it has affected his eyes, speech and memory. he is also very, very disoriented. he has slowly been getting worse. in the last couple of days, he isn't drinking much, and not urinating much. he is still eating good, when i wake him up. if i let him, he would sleep 24 hours a day. he is also very agitated. always fussing w/ the covers, reaching out for imaginary objects, speech is also very slurred. the drs. say nothing can be done. i was just wondering if this is the beginning of the end. still knows who i am, but can hardly say my name. any thoughts would be greatly be appreciated.
