My holding her. Person on next car assisted us and in about two minutes she "came to" and seemed ok. Person who assisted agreed I should contact her doctor whose office happened to be five minutes away. Took mom there and blood sugar, temp and BP were all normal. Dnp suggested ER which I declined because vitals normal but agreed to go home and watch her. She seemed fine during 20 m ride and closed her eyes a few minutes which is normal for her while riding. Mom had dementia but could speak somewhat clearly at times and seemed to understand well. Now however her speech is garbled except periodically a few words are understandable. Her movements and responses are slower but understanding still good. Appetite and sleep same/ok (she generally sleeps or doses a lot!) No use of walking aids ( so far, refuses), age 96. I'm calling Dnp in the am for a neuro referral. Anyone experience similar?
