Unfortunately, Divinity’s dementia symptoms have increased dramatically. My little lady no longer just paces at sundown; Divinity now regularly paces for hours throughout the night.
Last night the evening pacing began around 9:00pm, and kept up until around 1:30am. Every time Divinity made the rounds up the upper floor, she’d jump on the bed, and wake me. After very little sleep, I put Divinity in the back room with her bed, and closed the doors as I needed a break. However, when I checked on her at 1:00am, she was still pacing frantically.
Divinity receives the maximum dose of her dementia medication, so there’s no increasing the dosage in the hopes of calming my little lady. This is difficult behavior for her dad to watch. My sweet little lady is rapidly meandering her way into the sunset.
Ten days ago, I published a post on Divinity loosing weight. Unfortunately, since then she’s lost even more weight. I don’t have a scale, but I can feel her bones more than I could even ten days ago. Divinity’s boots are now regularly falling off, as her ankles have gotten smaller, as her weight drops.
As it is, I needed to modify her boots to fit, as even the smallest size boots, were too large for her tiny feet. I’m managing to keep the boots on for the most part, but after two plus years of heavy use, these boots are well worn.
