Just recently my dad (now 93) diagnosed with dementia in 2010 has had another few days of mini seizures which we presume was the cause of a fall in the bathroom banging & cutting his head, with bad bruising to his shoulder and face. Ironically a week later we've realised he has not had a fit since and even more so that the last period of mini seizures, May 2015, resulted in a fall breaking his collar bone after which the episodes also ceased! Is there an explanation for this? Unfortunately the last set of seizures seems to have affected his continence, slowing his reaction to respond to the need to wee! Is it now time to introduce pads? This is such an unforgiving disease. What has he to live for? By choice he would 'sleep' have his eyes closed all day, even when eating! So, so sad, especially for my mom (nearly 92) who is so devoted to him after 70yrs of marriage but at her wits end now as to how to cope day to day......sorry but it does help to 'talk'
