I was lucky enough to get a visit mom – no code reds for Covid- this past Tuesday. It was a beautiful day – 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. She came out with a nurse- who stayed close by the entire time, I’m assuming to make sure we do not hug, or take our masks off.
Her eyes were lit up and she stared right in telling me about her latest adventure. It went something like this; I am not quite sure how it happened it did not start out as an adventure, two people met one another and in the grocery store- we started talking about the food and blah, blah, blah and he said do you want to go out to dinner tonight?, And I said yes, I love to-then I won’t have to cook. She laughs at her joke- she kept talking about how he was a mommy’s boy and he was taking care of her. He said he had a job but, he never went to work. He was very clean, had very nice manners and very good looking. And we went out a few times, and I think he and his mother was looking for someone for him to marry because she was getting older. And he would need someone to take care of him. She went on with this story for about 20 minutes- I just sat and listened. I was trying to figure out if this is one of her memories a time in her life, or – if she read it in a book, saw it on TV or just made it up. I’ll never know.
The day was a good day, she was bright eyed, focused on her story and was very happy. She didn’t spend too much time worrying about what, why and when – of what happened to her as to why she is in “this place”. It was a wonderful visit.
I have figured out the game, and I have set up a doctor’s appointment for Monday, so I can get her out of the facility. I cannot go get her and take her out just for fun or just to spend time with her, but I can go get her and take her to the doctor and it’s okay. Sigh!!!!!!
I’ll let you know how it goes.
Love & Light!
