So my father is 73 just diagnosed 4 months ago with "dementia ". I know he's had it for at least 2 years. Saturday her called me before lunch (my usual time to come over ) and said he didn't feel good. So I threw my 3 boys in the car and raced over to his house. I went through the usual list of illnesses, he kept saying no to all of them. So off we went to the er, 4 days in hospital. No change in CT scans, no stroke, blood work normal, no uti. To explain this massive downturn, he's now delusional ( never was prior to Saturday ) now incontinent. They started him on excelon and seraquil (sp). They released him today he can barely walk, incontinent, and literally drooling on himself. I'm scared to death at this extreme spiral of health. Has anyone dealt with something similar?
