A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Crooked … Fingers

Wiggle … bend … pull ‘n jerk
Useful … when … they work
Clasp … a jar … open  doors
Blow your nose … shop at stores
Use a fork … knife … or spoon
Make a bed… throw a harpoon
They’re crooked … bizarre
You point one way … looking afar
They’re trouble … no way to grab
A piece of toast … on a slab
Arthritis (Arthur) … no friend
Lots of pain … no end
Grumpiness … can’t do for self
Lady Blue … jumps off the shelf
Waits for Lucy’s … getaway
Frustrated … no use to stay
The day goes … from smiles to blue
Crooked fingers … awkward  you.

    we tend to take the use of our hands and fingers for granted, but like everything else in our body they show the signs of age and illness. I can still use my computer but it hurts my fingers when they have been bent in one position for too long. And yes Arthur is there too. I massage every day but to no avail…..so I can really understand Mom’s frustration of not being able to do even the simplest of things…..life is not fair on those who are frail and elderly.
    love to you all
