We got Covid in October and the medicine they gave her shot her blood sugar to 890. I took her to the hospital and she had dehydration and low potassium. (Also her cortisol levels were low) She was in the hospital for about a week and then released to a nursing home/rehabilitation center to help her and then she was coming back home. She did have small confusion (she couldn’t remember how to answer her phone) and struggling to come up with words, but that was contributed to brain fog from Covid. She scored a 21 out of 30 on her MoCA test but they said that should improve with speech therapy and as the brain fog clears. She had a couple hallucinations and a little paranoia. (Was concerned if that might have been delirium) and she was about to be released in a couple week. Last Wednesday, her phone feel under her bed and she tried to get it and fell out of the bed and hit the floor. All she complained about was her elbow and she said she didn’t hit her head. The next day (Thursday) she had a little more confusion and some hallucinations but I didn’t think too much because I keep chalking everything up to brain fog. The next day (Friday) I get a call saying she is out of it and when a nurse tries to take her blood pressure the night before she screamed and hit at her. (She has never done this kind of behavior before.) I went up there and they were having to feed her her lunch because she couldn’t even bring the fork correctly to her mouth. I finished helping feed her and she couldn’t even speak in a complete sentence and struggled to talk. I took her to her room and she went to bed immediately and slept most of that day. The next two days (Saturday and Sunday) still bad. I asked them since she started this after her fall, could she have hit her head and have a concussion and need a CT scan. They said she didn’t hit her head and she didn’t complain about that. They checked her for a UTI and it was clean and her blood work shows normal. The next two days (Monday and Tuesday) she would be okay in the morning then after her medicine about and hour and a half later, she would look drugged out and can’t barely hold herself up. She also said she is having depth perception problems and dropping things. (I took some videos and everyone says she looks drugged out and on something.) After again asking for a CT scan they finally agreed (though it sounded like their idea.) but their doctor said he doesn’t think that is it and it is probably be dementia. (Her mother died of dementia about three years ago and I have feared my mom might get it.) The only other time I seen her like this, but not this bad, was when she was in another Skilled Nursing Facility last year and they kept trying to get me to admit her saying she had cognitive decline, we think they were drugging her because she would act confused and paranoid and once she got home, she had one more episode of that a week later then was fine until now. So I don’t know what to do or think. Several nurses and nurses assistance said they noticed a huge change and decline after her fall. It makes me upset that I have been saying this and asking for a CT scan for almost a week and now they suddenly want to do it. I don’t know if I can trust them here or if they are even going to give me the correct results or are they going to try to make me put her in permanently, which I am not because both of us want her home. Any help would be much appreciated because I don’t know where to turn.
