Today has been a pretty good day. Got to appointments and got several chores done. Mom ate about 750 calories today.
The highlight was that 2 hours after eating 100 calories for lunch, she decided she wanted ice cream. She got up and took the Rollator to the kitchen and fumbled around. I asked “What are you doing?” She replied she was getting ice cream. She just couldn’t remember where the bowls and spoons were. I guided her and she found the bowls and spoons but she couldn’t find the ice cream in the refrigerator. I guided her to the freezer and it was a eureka moment. She laughed.
I was giving her independence and just watching over her. She got a little ice cream and then proceeded to put the spoon back in the silverware drawer. She enjoyed the treat and I washed all the affected silverware. No biggie.
Today was a good day. She almost fell once even with the Rollator. It was scary. She has been a little more alert today but in a world of her own. Each day is a blessing. I don’t know how many we have. We just make the best of things.
