Dorothy’s Dementia

Not much has changed with mom- reread any day you’d like.  (-:     She has called me a few times this afternoon wanting to know where she is and how long she has been there.  I answered her questions with a smile on my face- and she is still confused.    I just roll with it- and you should find a way to do the same.  She’s sick and not going to get any better- this is as good as it gets-and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

I haven’t taken her out to do laundry since her fall- I do it and I do the ironing- and that’s ok- I go see her and we visit, and I listen to her song in person.  She calls me every day- several times- I always answer like it’s the first time and I listen to her sing her song.  She just needs someone to listen- someone to say they will help, someone to lean on. 

 I hate it for her and for the hundreds of thousands of folks just like her.  I hate it for the families.   It is what it is and we do the best we can.

Life is short- enjoy the journey- you never know what will happen to you.

Peace, Love and Light!
