Losing Spunk Episode # 51 In this episode of Care Giving for Dementia, I talk a little bit about the time I got stuck in Atlanta, Georgia airport when I was 14/15 years old. The trouble I had trying to catch the plane from Atlanta, Georgia the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania just to come home for Christmas one year. And the fact that I would probably still be Atlanta, Georgia if my mother had not been is spunky as she was. You see, Mama was the type of person who just had this look, a look that told you, no matter who you were, that you were going to do, what Mama wanted you to do. I honestly believe that Mama could get the President United States to do what she wanted as well. She just had that look that meant she meant business, and you were not going to change her mind, no matter who you were. I also talk about the fact that this devastating disease called, dementia has taken the person that took on a big airline to get me home for Christmas has changed that person so much that she’s afraid of her own shadow at times. Dementia has made her for afraid or scared of any and everything that she doesn’t know and it seems to be getting worse. I’m realizing that we are definitely losing Mama Altogether, not just the ability for her to do things, and the ability for her to talk to us, to advisor us on things, but the fact is that we are losing her altogether. Although we are realizing that were losing her altogether. We are nowhere near ready for this to happen. There comes a time when life changes, changes everything that you’re doing. We are finding ourselves in this situation, where we \ are going to be by ourselves in a very short time. A lot of it has to do with the fact that so many quick changes with mom. Some of it happening to do with the fact that the boy is now 22 years old and not knowing how long he’s going to stay home. He’s got his own life to live, how much longer the estate with mommy and daddy this, we don’t know.Read more »
