sceptre1067's Journal: Dementia

So... My mother-in-law appears to be going downhill fast...

Long story short:
Over 6 months ago her blood pressure shot through the roof, with out warning, causing short term memory issues... (Allegedley she did not have a stroke... but...)

Since then she has had good days and bad days, but over the last two months they're all bad... She doen't remember how to use basic machines (like a laundry machine.) And the doctores are pretty sure she has dementia.

My personal guess is that we are looking at some form of brain damage caused by the blood pressure incident and/or inconsistant taking of medications she is on.

So, if any body sees this, know of an expert on the topic? In other words any ideas as to what the medical world might have up its sleave?

sigh...
