    Parkinsons and Lewy Body Dementia

    Yesterday I was unable to get my husband awake. I tried at 6am, 7am, 9am and noon. He would stir a little then right back asleep. He has previously been diagnosed with Parkinsons and Lewy Body. I initially thought he had had a bad night. When I finally got a response from him at noon, he was very confused and disoriented. He was unable to walk steadily. He shuffled his feet when walking. I had to help him back to his chair. He kept dosing off. I called EMS and they transported him to the hospital. We found bruising on his right knee and right shoulder. After xrays they determined that he had pulled the ligaments in his right shoulder and may have a slight fracture on his right patella. It was determined that he must have fallen sometime during the night. No concussion. He is unable to remember yesterday and the events. He has been experiencing problems with his memory but nothing to this extent. Would Parkinsons and Lewy Body cause this? He is still feeling tired and has slept off and on most of next day.
