Thank You

Thank you so much for your well wishes for my Grandma and for me.

My Mum phoned first thing this morning (after several phonecalls to the Home yesterday), to tell me, Grandma steadily got worse after I left. Without going into all the details of her terrible day, yesterday, there is one positive that came out of the day! Her Doctor saw her, and diagnosed a urinary tract infection, which often causes alzheimers patients to have halucinations. I'm not glad she's got a UTI! But I am hoping that was the only reason she was halucinating.

I love Mr T. He is my rock, when I'm a basketcase! He said last night, one consolation is, that Grandma doesn't know she's in a bad way. That is true.

Thanks again for your wonderful words of support and prayer. You have no idea, how much I appreciate it.

Thank you.

Those 'rocks' are the best.

Thinking of your grandma.

I'm so glad that you have a possible reason for this. And now she can get the treatment she needs.

I can so relate to your posts. When my grandmother was in a nursing home, she got to the point where she didn't really know us at all. But one night, my mom was with her and called us, and put my grandmother on the phone. For a little while, she was back with us in the present, and we had a good conversation. It was so good to talk to her and have her know who I was. How I wish I had dropped everything and gone to visit her. It turned out to be a brief time of reality for her - the next morning she reverted back to her own world again.
