Weaving Progress

after lunch mom rolled all the strips I cut
then got the phone book
to look for her Mom's phone number
she can't believe none of us have it!
we just roll with it
some days she knows grandma is in heaven
then five minutes later wants to visit her
very hard to divert her
from wanting to go home and see her Mom
showing off my progress on the mat
I get a lot done when visiting her
she wants one of the other residents
to help her roll the strips
looks like I'll have to cut a bunch tonight
for tomorrow
Off today
I should be doing laundry, painting
but I'm whipped
spent 8 hours with her yesterday
a few this morning
thinking nap
then get up and do chores
that's the plan anyway

My mom suffered dementia for at least 8 yrs. before she passed this May from a physical ailment unrelated to Alzheimer's Disease. My mom sometimes thought she had seen her "mama" or would ask where her parents and only sister were. We would just say nonchalantly--"Oh, they are home" or "they are fine" because they were still with her in a sense in what memories she still had, so we decided to respect that. My sister and I are both members of Memory People - an online support group on Facebook. It was very helpful.
