I love both of my Grandma’s very much. But right now I find myself really thinking about my Grandma C, mostly because she is quickly forgetting me….
Grandma C has alztimers, it hit a few years back but its gotten to the point where she has moved into a locked nursing home floor and really its a 50-50 chance if she will know who I am when I call. If she does remember me its the same things over and over how is where, when are you coming up how is the hubby. But last night for the first time, she had no clue who I was…that was hard.
One of my best memories of her is her gold bag.They would come up pretty often, for every grandparents day, chior performace and so on. When they would come to visit, she would bring her big gold bag. I’m not even sure what was in it to be honest. My mom says just small things like coloring books and other small gifts. But I just remember the excitment of it. Grandma is coming, I wonder what is in the bag!!
My mom took this picture a few weeks ago when she was helping go through her closets and purge the clutter…
Its hard to not have her remember all the fun stuff we used to do on the farm. Catching frogs, styling her hair, all the fun arts and crafts. Or later after they moved in to town we would go to the Omaha Zoo, or I would help out at her flower and gift store….
I’m also feeling a little guilty, I was supposed to go down in February for my brothers birthday, but it didn’t happen. I hurt my shoulder and was stressed out with the whole workers comp, process. I just couldn’t go….and now?
Sorry pity party for one over here.
