Today, my mom's blood pressure and blood sugar are in the normal range. So far, she has not had any hallucinations or told me to "look!" at whatever it was that she was seeing.
For lunch I made string beans in olive oil with garlic and baked chicken thighs that had been seasoned with a little sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. I gave my mom extra garlic. Her blood pressure is good... her blood sugar is good... she has not had any "visitors."
It's almost hard to believe that just yesterday my mom was ready to take the bus to heaven so that she could be with my dad. Today, she's back to the mom I had always remembered. She's finding her words.
In addition to the string beans, garlic and chicken, I also made us a salad using Bragg's Healthy Vinegarette salad dressing. My mom knows that Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar is good for lowering blood pressure so she drank the little bit of dressing on the bottom of her bowl.
My mom's blood pressure was good all afternoon. She only saw my brother Ed sleeping in her recliner once. Yesterday and the days leading up to it, she saw dead people everywhere!
Observation: Hallucinations disappear when blood pressure and blood sugar are normal in my mom who has Lewy Bodies Dementia.
