When they got to the room and settled in, Dawn posted that after she installed Mom in the room and ran down to get the rest of their luggage she told Mom she would be right back and to wait for her. Silly Girl!! Sometimes, even now, we forget Mom's limitations. Of course, she came back to find Mom wandering the halls looking for her. It's so difficult because Mom is still quite intelligent so we assume she understands what we say to her.....and she does....until she forgets what you said to her. It is a very frustrating disease and I am glad that my sister posted this photo showing big smiles from the both of them. It made me feel much better.
So plans have changed for me today. I will call Nancy in a little while to let her know that she will not be needed. Then I will go and assist with the backpack program. I am sure they will welcome the help. Dawn is supposed to call sometime this morning to let me know if they are going to need to be picked up from the airport since their arrival time has changed. So I may or may not be heading down to the city.
