, I almost question her condition. Is this unusual? Mom has Lewy Body Dementia, moderate stages, and is 86 years old. Dad died 1 1/2 years ago. Her short term term memory is still mostly absent, and her sense of time continues to be very compromised, but for the past couple of weeks her mood is (now) somewhat elevated, and her ability to problem-solve and engage meaningfully with me is at times almost normal. She also seems more energetic and seems to be a bit more forward-looking. Her general complaining and waging war on the world were previously incessant but have lessened somewhat. I keep waiting for the proverbial "other shoe to drop". (I also begin to question my own sanity (!), i.e., have I merely imagined all this? Last month I was looking into enacting the financial and medical P.O.A. provisions drawn up by her attorney, and now I'm feeling that's not yet necessary as long as I continue to support her.) What accounts for this sort of positive change, and how long can it be expected to continue? We did recently have a big family wedding, which really threw her for a loop. I wonder if, with the associated stress and anxiety now gone/over, she is better able to apply her faculties and to function generally. Any insight will be appreciated! Thank you.
