All kinds of Suck
My mother in law has gone from living incredibly independently to needing assisted living and cognitive help over the course of a three week period. Really it was just two weeks she went from perfectly normal to not. Sudden doesn't begin to describe this decline. She has a couple infections and one can specifically cause this, the second infection, I guess the treatment can also cause dementia symptoms. I don't know what to think.

A month ago she bought a brand new car, a Honda Civic.

Today, we're waiting to hear a list of homes to possibly put her in for an indefinite amount of time.

If I've been snarky to anyone, I really deeply apologize.

I also apologize for my absence on the forum.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

So sorry to hear you're all going through this. I hope there's better news to come.

I'm sorry Moms Hug
Bladder infections can really raise hell and produce dementia-like symptoms in the elderly. My brother in law is a sharp guy, and he was flat out bonkers when they got him hospitalized.

RE: All kinds of Suck
I'm sorry to hear this. My dad had a bladder infection when he was 93 and he went off the deep end. He tried to take all his clothes off in the hospital and escape. At that point he didn't know what was happening.

Take care, Moms. We're all thinking of you.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
