A journey in time with Alzheimer's

I REMEMBER

I remember, in grade school, at an end of the year picnic, waiting for mom to come. I couldn’t eat till she brought the plate. She didn’t drive then, so she was late waiting on a ride to the school. My devastation led to tears.  When mom finally arrived ,  she walked up and smiled and  hugged me and everything was O.K.   Funny how little things can burn on your brain.  That memory has been with me ever since. Over the years, when I missed her,   I’d remember her smile … and a cozy feeling came over me. I guess that’s one reason I’m caring for her now, she cared for me….then.

    Today is a nostalgia day for me. Increase in Mom’s medicine has her calmer, easier to interact with. I see you Momma!

    you can build a lot on memories…do you have an old photograph albumn…it seems to be that people do like looking at the old times and your memories are just the same but you can remember , Mom cannot so maybe pictures would bring a little glimmer into her life

    you are doing very well, you must indeed be a very strong lady

    • I have 2 hugh frames full of family/friends pics. When she lucid, it does help. Today she looked at the pic of her deceased husband and asked who it was, I told her it was Clayton Cranmer, she said, where is he?? I said in heaven 10 years ago. She said that is nice that he’s in heaven. Her house burned in 2013, so many of her pics are gone. I’ve tried to gather as many as I have to help her on these lucid days.
