Visiting Grandma

My Grandma is an amazing woman! I went to visit her today in the nursing home. She dosn’t live in the same world we do, she has Alzheimers. Today seemed to be a good day for her. She talked of her deceased husband as though he was still living, she told us stories of things people had said to her at church that morning (they were funny stories!) but she hadn’t been to church that morning. We laughed at her stories and didn’t say anything about Floyd no longer living. This disease is such a horrible thief, stealing memories of those you know and love so that you don’t remember who they are or that they have been to visit. Causing you to live in the past not able to come to grips with the present, but like I said today was a good day, she was in a good mood and seemed to be content, this is not always the case. Our time with Grandma is so short, I am glad that I took the time to go see her…she didn’t know or remember me, but I know and remember her!

Getting a physical

When did the doctors become so young? Or is that I am getting old? the doctor was kind, did his best to make me feel comfortable, but he was so young that I was thinking maybe he was skipping school! And all those questions about everything! I don’t want to go into all that as it is none of your business! I passed, I was cleared to work with no restrictions! however, I don’t think I did so well on the depth perception part of the eye exam! I could not see the things they said I should be able to see…I knew my depth perception wasn’t the greatest but actually taking a test an realizing that I could only see 3 of the 9 bubbles that were supposed to be 3D is discourging. I guess that means that they won’t be using me for 3D stuff!!! So now I go to orientation on Mon and Tues then I start work. Exciting stuff for a stay-at-home-mom!
