Conchita has been struggling with the after-effects of a brain bleed (stroke) she suffered on January 2016. The stroke affected her left temporal lobe, which influences her memory and word finding. After her stroke, with the help of physical, occupational, and speech therapy, Conchita was able to regain most of her abilities, but struggled with short-term memory issues and mild aphasia (difficulty with word recall). By October 2018 her struggle included not only memory and aphasia issues, but also occasional hallucinations that were very real to her. On November of 2018 she was officially diagnosed by her memory care doctor with mild Vascular Dementia. Conchita’s desire was to be as independent as possible and to continue living in her Indianapolis home as long as possible, so she did. By the summer of 2019, the doctor had upgraded her condition to moderate-advanced dementia. Then, on July 11, 2019 Conchita had a fall at home that scared her and her two boys, so all three of them decided it was time for her to move into a senior living facility and she relocated to Oklahoma City where her oldest son, Lemuel, lives. Because she has friends and family all over the world, it is difficult to keep everyone updated. This Caring Bridge journal is intended to keep those who love Conchita appraised of her ongoing journey. Most entries are written by and from the perspective of her two sons, Lemuel and Abner. Comments and well-wishes are encouraged and welcomed.
