One never knows what will show up next when it comes to dementia.
Capgras syndrome arrives.
MIL was placed in a Memory Care facility.
Capgras syndrome leaves.
Every day is a new way of trying to leave memory care.
3 months later Capgras syndrome returns.
The only consistent theme has been MIL trying to come up with a reason to leave memory care -- everything from "taking a leave of absence" to "my home becoming a **** hole without me there" to "the bugs here are eating me" to the 50,000+ other reasons she has to go back to "her" (really hubby's) house.
Twist -- Latest call to son/imposter:
MIL: You can't make me stay. I'm leaving and going home because my son didn't leave me here, you did. I'm going to call the judge because your not my son. Blah, blah, blah...
...20 minutes later...
Son/imposter: [silence]...I'm busy mom. Bye. [click]
