hair dryer

Mom is so lost. She is loosing touch with reality, more and more.

"They gave me this hairdryer. They said it's mine for keeps."
How do you reply to this?
"Well that was very nice of them." I blurt out. Good thing she can't see the bewilderment on my face. This is the same hairdryer she has had for years. It has hung in the same place at her apartment for nine month. She uses it almost every morning.

I guess her aide found her the other morning with the hair dryer in one hand and the tv remote in the other, and no idea as to what she should be doing.

Mariarose: I haven't had a lot of time lately to be reading the Alz. Blogs but after updating mine today I checked out yours. Just wanted to say it is always nice to hear about someone else's experience in this strange, challenging disease. Take care of yourself.
