Things that make no sense...

So, for those of you who are familiar with Dementia...nothing makes sense. One day might be awesome with total clarity...and the next a complete mess. On a daily basis, I have to help dress my grandmother and do her hair.

Well, today was so different. I woke up to my grandmother's door quietly opening, and to my surprise she was dressed. She had on an outfit that matched, and had combed her hair. But the biggest thing of all was the shoes. She struggles on a daily basis to put on her sandals, that have velcro straps. Today she had on her tennis shoes, and had tied the bows...all by herself.

To things that make no sense....way to go Oma!!

shalene that is hilarious! maybe she knows pretty soon you won't be able to tie your own shoes so she's preparing herself. :) one less thong you had to do yesterday.

Stacy, you are crazy!!! But so true, one less "thong." Good picture of your Oma though.
