Dorothy’s Dementia

30 minutes later on Mothers Day

Hello Cheryl,

I need your help- what day is it?  I have my calendar mess up.  What day is it?

Its Mother’s Day- the 12 of May, 2019

Oh that’s right- you came today to see me didn’t you.

Yes, we went to Paul’s and hung out for a few hours.  

So  how long do I have to be here?   Is there any medicine they can give me?

They give you medicine two times a day

I don’t remember that.  

My mind is working better today than it has in probably 6 months or more.  Because I just can think better.  So – I ……. but I’ve been looking at a book here and it seems like I’ve been out of it for a long time.   Is that correct?

I remember that when I first came in I was worse than I am now…what would you say?

Do you know what doctor I’m going to ?   does he come to me or do I go to him.  Dr. Ward comes to see you  

 I remember the name Dr. Ward- but I don’t remember seeing him or him looking in my ears eyes and nose.  

I am concerned about something and I don’t’ know if I need to tell you about it or not.  I need to think about it and see if it really happened the way I remembered it.  I want to think about it some more.  I’m gonna wait until I get a little more functionional.

Did they do any kind of blood test when I came in here- they need to look at my blood  –I wish they would have done that.  

So, I think I’m gonna be okay Cheryl- I think I’m gonna come out of it and be okay.  But I don’t know what I’m going to do ..i want you to start about thinking about what would be a good choice for me if I did not want to go back to my house.  I don’t think I want to do that. I know that you wanted to move to Woodstock, but now I’m concerned about you moving into my house because I don’t want you to have to go through this.   I don’t’ want for whomever did this to me confuse you with me and do this to you. I think that we need to think about that –like I said I wouldn’t want you to go through this.  Because I’m gonna tell you this ;but I don’t want you to share with anyone.  I remember I was in the living room and two young boys came in the back door and I was sitting on the floor doing something with paper and I can’t eremember what it was- they pushed m flat on the floor and poured something from a glass in my mouth. I tried to spit it out – as much as I could but it knocked me out -I don’t know anything after that until I woke up I didn’t know where I was I can’t remember where that was.  I’m not going to go back to that house..I want you to be very careful I don’t’ want something like this happening to you.  Don’t say anything to Paul about this…I don’t think Paul would believe it.  I just as soon not involve him with this…In the last two days I feel better and I can think better.  I still really hysterical but I think I’ll survive it.   I’m not going back to that house ever….. so – I don’t know what I’m gonna do I can stay here until I figure it out. 

I just want to share this with you.

I’m going to see if I have any ice cream bars -if I do I’m going to eat one and go to bed.

 I love you.
