Why is my Mom always tired and sleeping all the time this week?

She was never like this up until a week ago...I apologize in advance to 'beat the horse' here; I know I asked a similar question yesterday in regards to her health but I am at a loss.
She turned down our garage saling together today! Totally not like her. She woke up, made herself eggs and toast... now says she sat down fell asleep in the chair... a bit of stomach upset... nothing major I bought her Activa yogurt she had one before bed... but today she's just totally fatigued again.
What could have brought this on?
I just took her to the doctor a week ago and he gave her a good bill of health considering the dementia....
She slept all afternoon yesterday, through the night last night, and now is still tired.
ideas ??
thanks

I will do that, thanks... but honestly I feel like I am going mad myself at this point because I went to check on her about 2 hours after typing this question and she was dressed up! I said how are you? "Good.." I said do you want to go out? "Sure!" Then she was out 3 hours shopping at garage sales and is home now with her coffee and a donut. I'm totally stumped. All I can think is she mixed her pills up, which I took away from her today.....
From now on I'll do the divvying up of them.
I was thinking possibly a blood pressure or diabetic problem too, though, and I will follow up as more happens... I will also ask dr. what he thinks.

I would take her back to her Dr.. Tell him all the symptoms you have seen and have her checked for a uti...

Sudden changes like this warrant a call to the MD. If you can take her blood pressure, that would help, and you can buy the wrist cuff at the drugstore. They also sell the fingertip O2 sensors which are nice to have. If she is diabetic, her sugar may be too high. Also listen to her breathing, you should hear air coming in and leaving without any crackle or cough. Stethoscopes are cheap and easy to use. Still, call the MD, because something has changed.
