:My husband who was diagnosed with Vascular last year. (I was told at the time it is not dementia). His short term memory is getting worse. The thing I want to ask is, he goes into what I call a trance, where he just stares, his lips go blue, and he looks like he is eating a sweet. I can shout at him but he doesn't hear. When he comes round after a few minutes he talks to me but keeps repeating the same thing over and over again. Then he seems to be really tired and sleeps for quite a few hours. Does anyone know of anyone suffering this condition, and also is it anything to do with having a mini stroke, or is it TIA. I would be grateful if there is anyone out there that could give me some information on this, as I haven't read anything that sounds like the symptoms that my husband is suffering. Juliebabs.
