Dementia Road Trip – Day 5

Gpa got up a lot in the night.  Boy did that wear me out.  He also wandered around and at lunch he let me know that he didn’t know where he was and that he was embarrased that he didn’t know where he was or where he lived.  So much for loosing vocabulary!

He and Rocio looked at a children’s book and he knew all the words.

I had a networking thing that I went to in the evening and I think I made a mistake of getting Gpa up to go to the bathroom one more time before I went to bed.  Gpa got up every hour on the hour.  He kept saying he wanted to get out of here.  He told me he hurt in his chest. I debated on if I should call the doctor.  I decided that because I had fed him some brisket and potatoes, he might have heart burn.

I gave him a tums and his complaint about his chest.  he still wanted to get out of here.

Then he got up and wanted to go to the bathroom. but he tried to sit down before he even got to the bathroom!  If he had been able to do that he would have fallen.  I kept him up and it made him mad. “what is the matter with you?” He demanded.

I had no idea how to explain, so I didn’t.
