Hi, I've cared for my mum for the past eight years with alzhimers and have watched her sad decline. Mum was blue lighted to A&E 5 weeks ago with aspirated pneumonia and in the throws of a major heart attack. We were told she would not last the day!!! Well they didn't know the strength of my mum! She has "recovered" from the pneumonia & HA but is now bed ridden,unable to speak,asleep 99% of the time,unable to swallow & we have been told her death is imminent. Today whilst sitting with her she was asleep but suddenly her body started to jerk her eye lids fluttered open and all you could see was mainly the whites but then I could see her eyes rolling about. When I asked a nurse she said she was just dreaming!! Is this right as it looked more of a seizure to me. Are seizures common at this stage of the disease?
