Small update: some testing has revealed this could be a case of Autoimmune Dementia.

He's on a large dose of steroids for two weeks (will be re-evaluated for efficacy at that time), and has been released from the hospital.

We are approximately 40 hours into release and....I'm just not sure how well he can be cared for at home.

The steroids are making him feel invincible, and he was already stubborn about using the walker, avoiding stairs and taking his prescribed medicines at mom's direction (instead of at his own direction).

Mom's choice to take him home first instead of releasing him into care, so we are supporting her in that attempt. He does have care lined up in case this doesn't work out, and Home Health will be there this week to support her as well.

Fingers crossed.
