Good and Bad Days

Good and bad days – seems to be the order of the day. For a good week or so I really thought I was not going to be able to take care of my husband at home. He couldn’t walk, and I would push him good and bad days have Faitharound on his walker (with a seat). That wasn’t the scary part; he would actually look like he was becoming catatonic and buckled, no matter how I tried to get a response I couldn’t. Usually small periods of time but there was an incident when he was out longer I almost wanted to call 911.

I don’t want to get doctors involved that don’t know his history – it is really dangerous and can actually kill him if they give him drugs for Alzheimer’s instead of Lewy Body. They are both dementia but are different in some ways including how the brain reacts to chemicals.

I took his blood pressure and it was low so I took him off his blood pressure medication. Have not had many incidences since – maybe that is what it is and we dodged a bullet.
