Mom's losing it

August 11th, 2015 at 03:48 pm

This journey is just beginning, but I continue to be shocked and dismayed by mental changes happening with my mother.

Yesterday I mentioned to my mother that my dad (they've been divorced for years) was looking into back surgery because he's been in a lot of pain.

Today my mother called and mentioned that she was thinking of going to the wake with me. Somehow, her mind made the leap from Dad isn't feeling well to Dad is dead.

Frightening and disturbing. It's only just begun.

Hopefully her cousin from NJ will visit her this weekend as planned. It will likely be the last time they see each other.

    I'm so sorry....my grandmother had dementia and it was so sad watching her decline. Hang in there....(hugs)

    Yes, these things are very hard to witness. Chances are, though, this was a bad patch and she will also have periods of lucidness. That's how it went with my mother.
