    Aw mate, this sound like a lot to take in and get your head around and all involved must be all over the place with it all.

    Sorry to hear this, but my 78 year old Mum went downhill rapidly with both dementia like symptoms and in general health and energy. I thought it was the end for her as it was that bad.

    Turns out it was significant vitamin B12 deficiency plus a urinary tract infection. Iíve attached the thread I raised.

    Make sure youíve pushed your doctor to do a full blood and UTI test.

    Hereís hoping itís something simple like that.

    Sorry to hear this.

    Not much I can add in terms of practical help but happy to lend an ear if you need to vent.

    Guys thank You for ll the kind words Mum-In-Law is going to a Specialist GP on Wednesday I'll update the thread thereafter.
    I must admit there are other forum contributors got things far worse I've also decided I'm fed up of Commercial flying so I've decided to push the redundancy button.

    First of all, sorry to hear your heart breaking news. I truly hope that things work out better than you expect.

    My OH was cabin crew for a long time and she still has a lot of friends in the industry. I really hope that you get a decent severance package. Unlike what BA are currently offering to their guys. Fingers crossed everything works for you buddy.

    Hi Manny, sorry to hear about your MiL. I hope they can bring her back to good health.
    Might be a good time to take redundancy as well, as family is first. Take care and I wish you and your family good health.

    Those UTIs are lethal in older people - i'm convinced it accelerated my grandmother's dementia

    Guys thanks for all the warm kind words a quick update regards Mum In Law She is being referred for a CT scan as a matter of urgency so hopefully will be done by middle of coming week the absolute downturn in Her faculties is truly shocking She will start a conversation then halfway through forget What She's talking about.
    She's having trouble dressing Herself at the GP assessment He asked Her to count the date backwards She couldn't do it,
    tried the same with reciting Her address again failed to carry out that task and lastly Doctor asked Her to count the months backwards starting from January She started with January then jumped to October missing out December and November.
    It appears that there are gaps in Her cognitive thought process and She just wants to sleep constantly complete loss of appetite and completely unsteady on Her feet.
    We've set up a care assessment for Her to visit Her and see what Her capabilities are I really feel sorry for Her as I have never seen such a deterioration in a Person's condition so quickly.

    Probably not the case here, but I've had elderly relatives show similar signs through dehydration. Just a thought.
