Dorothy’s Dementia

AAAAUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!   I’m having a Charlie Brown moment.     Sigh!

Dorothy has called twice today, and the Full Moon was 4 days ago, LOL- what’s up?

She called me first thing to let me know she was ready to go home.   I listened to her reasoning and told her there was nothing I could do about it today- that I would be there on Friday to help her figure it out.   

It’s noon and she’s calling again- I answer and it’s the same song- so I listen and tell her that she has to figure out a way to make this situation the best that she can- because she cannot go home.  Mom, you are home- and you have to understand that you have it much better than lots of other folks who are in the state ran facilities- who share a room and a bathroom with up to 4 other people.    Look at what you have and embrace it- it doesn’t get any better than this.   She said “yes Cheryl I do have it better than some other people.  But I do not understand why I have to be here, and her song starts from the beginning.

I hate it for her- I cannot imagine what she is going through in these moments- with the exception of being on the other end and hearing it.    

At some point there will be a time when I will say ok- I give.  I can’t do this anymore.  But for now, I totally understand that for some reason – I am to be her person.   The Angels will tell me when it is time to let go.   And I will – it will be hard, but I will.

Mercy is needed for all those suffering with this terrible disease- May God bless them all.

Love and Light!

Cheryl Doreen
