hope everyone is well!!
Few times this last week I have seen and observed confusion with my dad. He has asked few times about a medicine he takes, which doesn't exist. He gets confused what to take and when so I've taken control of that. He took his advair like 2 hours early then normal at night, which isn't a big deal other than he said that's time he always does, which it isn't. So those are the few confusion items.
His eating is almost non existent. I understand the need to do small meals and snacks throughout the day. But he eats so little it boggles me. He always expand he can't eat that much when his lungs are so inflated. And to make matters worse he hasn't gone to bathroom in like 3 days, with exception of a small one here or there. So that makes u feel more full and bloated too.
His eating has concerned me since he has been home for like 7 weeks now. The 9 weeks in nursing home his eating was very light too for first few weeks there but improved quite a bit last few weeks there. But now it's horrible. And not for lack of trying. I cook everyday.
I guess these concerns might be more care towards care givers who have observed this, but any and all replies appreciated of course.
One final comment, and this comes from all my reading online lol. But the confusion, eating habits and anxiety are all topics that come up when someone might be near the end. Hence my posting again and concerns
