Have today had a meeting with the Manager at Moms home on my request as Mom seems to be deteriorating over the last 3 weeks. I was concerned about the deep sleep Mom goes into and there is no way she will wake up till she is ready. Also she is losing weight even though she is now on supplement drinks. I was informed that this deep sleep is part of Alzheimers and as far as eating Mom does not eat her main meal, she will eat her soup and her sweet but not savoury. What has shocked me most is that i was informed that Mom is at stage 4 kidney failure. At the time I was not aware of what this meant as never had anyone with kidney problems. I have looked it up since I got home and am so shocked to read about it. From what I have read Mom is definitely now in the last stages of this cruel disease. I am going to see her again tomorrow and will have another chat now I know how serious the kidney failure is. Has anybody else experienced this stage of the illness please? Would be interested to know what is next to come.
