This weekend I was lucky enough to head on home to A-town. Not only was I excited to see grandma, since it had been a while. I was super jazzed that I also got to help celebrate her birthday with her.
On Saturday, grandma was in a great mood. She actually was speaking very clearly and a lot. Lately she has gone down in health. She is no longer talking as well, or wanting to. Abby and mom put her on hospice about a week ago. I know how hard that is as I helped with grandpa. Another reason I really wanted to head down to see grandma. We visited with her twice on Saturday, and for some time. She was looking so great. I think she even remembered who I was both times. She did get excited when I talked about the wedding….she like my grandpa wanted me married badly.
On Sunday mom and I did some shopping and bought her a few things. You know since she has Alzheimer’s she really wont remember it (or even me), but you still want to make it a production. (I mean come one we have birthday WEEK in our house) We bought her a new outfit that seemed comfy to hang around all day in. Then we picked up a nice soft cheesecake that she could probably eat. Headed up and had our selves a little party. Okay so she was not in the “best” of moods, but she still enjoyed it I think. Mom and I also hung us some wedding pictures. I had a few made to place on her cute bulletin board mom put in her room. All in all even in the “not so best mood” I think grandma really enjoyed her birthday. I know mom and I enjoyed celebrating it with her. Here are a few pics from my visit.
