Hi Irene and all,
I wanted to ask if anyone else has had an experience with a LO having a sudden and rapid decline. My Mom had a UTI last week, and I have blamed her symptoms on that. But this week, even though there was an improvement in her sleep pattern, she has declined in other areas. I am going to have to put signs on the bathroom doors because suddenly, she is forgetting where the bathroom is and needs assistance in the bathroom. She's unable to get out of bed alone. She yells "help" instead of calling us by name. Also is VERY unsteady and shakey the first half of the day. These are some big changes for sure. My question is, do LBD patient have ups and downs? Will she be better if a few days? Or once they decline, do they continue that decline? Did the UTI sap her energy? I am sad because I should be able to ask her DR these questions, but as little as I know, it's more than he knows!
I am very worried.
