Stepmother geriatric appt

Well, my 2 stepbro's took my stepmom on Friday. They paid an aide to go with them to help with her personal needs. She did fine on the trip - didn't respond to much of anything but was passive. The doctor wanted her to fill out this 10 page questionaire and realized quickly she couldn't. They feel she is overmedicated for her age. They also did blood and urine workup. Both were fine. They did an MRI which we do not know results of yet. The doctor said he saw where there was no diagnosis in any of the medical papers from her 2 doctors here. He wonders if she hasn't had a stroke. Maybe the MRI will show that? They want to slowly reduce her meds if MRI is fine. She will most likely get combative - that's what's happened in the past. She was hallucinating some while there and he saw that. They should get results in the next week. Thanks for your continued concern! I'll keep you posted. RY
