More changes...Each day I am happy for the blessings in my life. Mom seems to have settled once again into the the routine at the nursing home. She seems to recognize me but not with as much excitement. She still feeds herself part of the time and staff and residents really care about her. God has a plan and mom's plan included touching lives at the nursing home.
When I arrived yesterday for our visit, she was actually taking a nap on her bed!! This is very unusal for mom. She woke up slowly. Sat up on the edge of the bed and looked at her shoes on the floor, "Is that my fires?" "Fires...hmmmm. Yep those are your fires." We started to look at old photos in the the little albums. I pointed to her brother and said, "Steve Mihna." Her response, "Pete Mihna?" No, Petes in our family. Not even a friend named Pete. She continued to make statements that made no sense through out the visit. We still enjoyed dinner. She grabbed the ice cream as soon as the dinner arrived. She ate that first and then the salad. No interest in the stew but ate the applesauce.
