I just don’t understand Dementia. My mom was diagnosed in July and she wasn’t that bad but not really eating or bathing but would get dressed and go sit outside almost all day long. Now I move her in with me and my husband in Aug and she has done nothing but go down hill. She doesn’t take a bath until I make her. She goes to bed by 5:30 or 6:00 and don’t get up until 10 or 11. Now she pees in the bed at night so put Depends on her and also she hardly talks. How does a person go down this fast?
My FIL had a tumor on brain and died in 6 months and had a friend with Lung Cancer and died shortly after he found out but Dementia I didn’t realize you would go down hill this fast. Oh 2yrs ago my mom weight was 145 now she weighs 90. She knows me, my sis and hubby but she is starting to forget a lot of thing which that I expected but this other has me so upset I don’t know what to do.
Jan 3 she goes to Neurophysiologist for test...I guess to see how far along she is or what kind of Dementia she has. I know there are different kinds like Lewy Dementia.
On top of this we just found out that my Step FIL has a tumor on his lung. My MIL is so up set as are I and my hubby. We take him tomorrow for a biopsy.
