In the past two days Dan can barely stand on his feet. We generally use two people to walk him to bed and up one stair to a chair that carries him to the upstairs. One in front holding his hands and one behind to support him. If we help sway him from side to side he can move his feet. Now he is barely able to help us get him into a wheelchair.
He has a tough time getting food to his mouth, but manages well with small sandwiches and cut up fruit . Tonight it took him 30 minutes to eat a small sandwich. Any ideas. ? He has had steroid therapy once a week to lessen the inflammation in his brain, but that was 4 days ago.
I must call to get a hospital bed and put it in the living room as well as some type of equipment to get him in and out of bed. Does anyone have any suggestions. It’s so scary that this is happening so quickly . He looks miserable and I think he was really depressed today. I could not get him to answer me with a head nod or hand gesture. He was on an antidepressant at the beginning of his journey and it did not seem to help. Has anyone had any success with antidepressants
Thanks you for your support . It’s nice to have somewhere to turn .
