MIL in hospital

My MIL has been diagnosed with demetia. Shes in complete denial, refusing help and accusing everyone of trying to 'drive her twisty'.
My sister in law is over from the US and is staying with Mum. Mum has been being sick a lot last week, and yesterday she complained of chest pain and ended up in hospital.
Shes still there, having alsorts of tests.
Its her birthday today.... not quite the way she hoped to spend it. 馃槖

I鈥檓 so sorry to hear this and know how frustrating it is for all involved. Denial and accusations are part of it unfortunately plus the confusion only adds to the diagnosis of illnesses. Positive vibes headed your way.
I am so sorry about your mother in law. Dementia is a horrible way to die. Knowing what is happening to you some of the time, and then not knowing anything at all.

@Dusty101 but the problem is hun, im not around! Im at work, i dont drive and i cant be there to look after her. But, she doesnt want looking after and wont accept help from outside agencies.
Its so very hard.....
@RubySoo Ah it's a pity she won't accept outside would give peace of mind if she would take it. Must be hard on you all hon! 馃
