Dorothy’s Dementia

Dorothy made her daily call at 6:15 last night.  Even though I was out with frineds- took the call.  I asked her if everything was ok and that I’d have to call her back in about an hour.   

She said ok- no problem- you don’t have to call me back, I’ll talk to you tomorrow.

Fifteen minutes later she called back.  Again I answered- she had no remembrance of calling me just a short time before.  I asked again if everything was ok and she said – I really need to talk to you.  I again said I was with friends and I’d have to call her back.  

Fifteen minutes later. I did not answer.

Fifteen minutes later. I did not answer.

Fifteen minutes later she called again, and I answered. Her song was the same as most nights- I need your help getting me out of here. I listened for 25 minutes.

I hate that she doesn’t remember.   I can’t imagine what she is going through.

Remaining cool, calm and collective it the secret.

Peace & Love,

Cheryl Doreen
