phone call

Mom's psychologist just called I wanted to speak with her about how Mom has been doing since I have not seen her in 5 months.
Mother has her own little group of old ladies, she crochets,watches TV and plays cards with them. She has good days, sick and some days where she just wants to get out of there.
According to her doctor she has "holes" in her memory due to the Alzheimer's and possibly a stroke. When those "holes" come around that is when she gets angry. Dr. Sarah says she is doing fine for someone her age.
Her doctor also told me that it takes more than one person to tend to someone in her condition. She assured me that I am taking care of her by having her in Baptist.
I was also told it was up to each of my family if they wanted to see her. It could go either way as far as how she would behave.
This was the first time I have spoken with her psychologist. I cried she was kind told me everyone needs to make there own decision.
Prayer is the only way I can come up with a decision. Hope you all are doing okay with your family members. Take care and God Bless.


  1. You could take the 50/50 chance of going to see her. If it's a crabby/angry day the good part is she'll forget about it soon enough. It might make you feel better to go though.

  2. Debbie, that is very true. I am still thinking and much else going on. how are you doing?

  3. I would go see her if you want too. It will make you feel better and if he gets mad that is ok. like Debbie says she will forget it soon. And you seeing her will always be in your memories. But if you don't want to that is ok too.

  4. Still thinking still praying....
