What a day! My mother is 97 today and is at Maples Nursing Center in Wrentham.
Tammy, Brittany, Sandy and I visited her with presents and cupcakes. It was not a good day for my mother today. We never know what to expect when we visit and can only hope for the best.
Gladys was a personal loan officer at Ben Franklin Savings Bank for decades, and when I saw the look on her face I knew it was a tough day. That's the look loan customers received when they didn't pay on time!!!
Last week she was good and had the nurses laughing....not so much today!!!
The nurses and a few of the residents sang with us, while she held her baby doll. I'm very thankful for that doll. It calms her down, and she talks to the doll.
My mother is physically very strong, but her dementia seems to be progressing. We're fortunate to still have her with us and hopefully she'll be in a better mood at the next visit.
By the way, she still has a sweet tooth. She ate the frosting off one cupcake!!!!
