Good Morning to all you kind and helpful people out there! I have (hopefully) used your advice to good effect. I found out that the brain scan that we thought Mum had was in fact an x-ray, so the consultant booked her for a scan yesterday, but the queue was too long and last night had still not been done. They are changing her anti-depressants,as they think this may be causing the spasms. I spoke to our AS support worker, Elayne, (who is the most wonderful and helpful person!) and she explained that the Aricept and anti-depressants have two almost opposite effects on the brain and that they can sometimes cause problems when used together. She also advised that we should get a written assessment of needs before Mum is discharged. Mum was much better yesterday. She had, apparently, found her way to the hospital loo twice in the night, unaided! She can't do that at home! She can walk and we have not noticed any spasms. Interesting point- The effect of the old anti-depressants must have worn off (not taken any for a week now) but also, we have been getting her to drink water and apple juice for the first time in months. Could this have helped the "miraculous" improvement overnight? Personally, I feel it has helped. Next step is to see what comes from the brain scan. Off to work now. Love to you all.
