My mil came home on Monday and had no recollection of having been in hospital for 10 days. She has lost weight and on reading the discharge papers noticed that the Ward doctor has seen her CT scan which showed a bleed in the brain and small vessel disease so I guess she has vascular dementia. Still waiting for the follow up appointment for the CR scan, discharge notes also said she is to have another CT scan in 6 weeks. Mil has been in bed since coming home from hospital, she now needs to be bathed
