Lucid conversations

It always makes me nervous when I start having lucid conversations with people who are normally wallowing in dementia. I worry that it might be a precursor to a change for the worse in their condition.

I had one of these conversations last night and I went ahead and reported it to the charge nurses. They told me the resident had been having chest pains the night before and that the last time they had the angina, two days later they were sent to the ER. Could be a connection... or it could just be the full moon.
