This weekend has been full of worries. I went to visit Mom on Saturday and she could not remember me. I knew that this day was coming. It has been 8 years in the making. I just did not want to face it. Trying to get Mom to talk is hard. Very hard. I ask her questions and she looks at me with a blank expression on her face.
I could not get her to put down her cards when I came in. I put my arm across the cards and she put the cards on top and under my arm. It did not phase her at all. Finally, she put the cards down, but she was not very lucid and getting her to talk was hard.
I left after 40 minutes. I could not watch Mom like that.
Then today, I talked to Dad. He is not feeling well at all and sounded bad. He lost something that is important to both of us and was afraid to tell me. He also fell and messed up his shoulder. I am really worried about him.
I don't know who to worry about more.
