Bob was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in April 2017 after years of various medical testing. Early March 2018 began a decline with symptoms dramatically changing, causing him distress and so much suffering. At the advice of his Doctor, he was admitted to Christ Hospital on March 27th, 2018 to help figure out which meds will alleviate his distress. We discovered one of the meds has caused him AFib and they are now doing EKGs everyday and having a Cardiologist see him. He is unable to tell the Dr where he is and his speech is difficult to understand. He has lost so much physical ability since he has been in the hospital . He as to be assisted to do most things. A Neurologist will be coming in Wednesday, April 4th, as well as a palliative care consult. At this point, they are talking about discharging him Friday, April 6th. He is going to need 24 hour care so we are still praying and discovering what will be best for Bob.
We ask for prayers for this hospital stay to do what it can to alleviate his suffering after we leave.
