Game playing abounds
It seems to be getting harder to write this blog now that Mom is home. She is getting stronger and doing well at home. We have arranged a daily schedule for supervision among Dave, Betty, and I plus friends helping out when needed. Mom is content to just sit in a chair. Definitely not something Helen did in the past. I find her attention and behaviors to be similar to a 4 year old at times including tormenting the cat, not wanting to go to the bathrooom, getting up and dressed, getting ready for bed, and not taking pills. It just doesn't seem right to nag her about these issues but that seems to be required to get her moving and keep her moving. Therapies have been resumed on an outpatient basis. Game playing is still a favorite activity and good therapy for her. I especially want to thank everyone for the visits, cards, prayers, and gifts of food and flowers. It has all been very much appreciated. Mom is talking on the phone some now so if you want to talk to her, please call.
