Last week, Mom was dehydrated and got sick. I put her to bed and every time she would lay back she had to sit back up. She tried to vomit but all she did was dry heave, violently. Nothing came up. I thought this was so odd as she should have at least threw up her lunch. Right? Anyway, the next day she was fine with no memory of the night before.
Since this episode, the CNA's have been more attentive to her fluid intake. She seems better, with the exception of saying that she is "swimmie headed." (Dizzy). I assume the dehydration is to blame.
When I visited Mom today, her CNA said that she could not get her to eat her lunch. She said she tried several times and stopped when Mom became frustrated. So, no lunch for Mom.
I'm wondering if this is her new normal. I know that when she eats, she eats a few bites and stops, saying that she is full. I ate lunch with her yesterday and she ate very little.
Has anyone had a similar experience with their LO?
