Hello, not been on in a while, have been reading lots of threads whilst realising that I've been her firstly comparing how mum was in the early stages with the confusion and wandering right through to now where I feel she is entering her final times. A few days ago we visited and found her in bed in the CH, this isn't unusual she was having more and more tired days but she wwould always eat and drink her sweet cakes and coffee. A day or so later we had a call to say they were worried about her as she was poorly, not eating or drinking and very, very sleepy, difficult to rouse. When she was roused she was vacant and had a glassy eyed look. She was also having whole body twitches / jerks that they weren't sure the cause was. They were going to keep an eye on her and call a doctor if necessary but yesterday she improved a little and they were able to get her to drink a little and eat a little puréed food. We had a call this afternoon to say she has gone down again and the doctor was coming. She is the same, difficult to rouse, not talking in much fluids or food and twitching and jerking constantly. The doctor says there is no obvious indication of infection, her chest and urine are clear and she is just to be kept confortable and 'wait and see' how things develop. We have all expressed the wish that she isn't hospitalised so that's all we can do, keep her comfortable and 'wait and see'. So difficult, all I want for her is peace.
