As some of you know, I've been having a hard time managing my grandma's health since she started to decline the beginning of January. Normally even on her bad days, she still can talk and not stop talking. She's one of those people where you will stand there for a hour trying to get 1 word in. The past 2 days though, I don't think she's said 10 words. She just lays in bed all day. This morning she threw up, and instead of telling me so I can clean her up and change her bed sheets, she told me she didn't care. She'd rather lay in her puke, than have to get up because she "wasn't up to trying to get up". She is sleeping 20+ hours a day, except when she goes through these episodes where she gets so confused and scared that she forces herself to stay awake for days. She's eating more than she used to, but that's because of an appetite stimulant they put her on. Even with it though, she can't even finish a pudding or fruit cup. We get her those Fruties to go by beech nut, and she can't finish on of them. She's having more trouble swallowing than normal, also. Is becoming withdrawn normal though? I don't know if it's because she's 91, or due to her Alzheimer's and health problems.
I'm not sure what to put this under, so I'm just going with Emotional Wellbeing.
