Just a couple of days ago, My mom's two sisters and brother-inlaw came to visit. My mom's older sister who is very frail at 93 years old, sat next to mom's bed and held her hand. It was so sweet. They had not been together for quite some time. My mom who will be 92 this month, has vascular dementia, but says some very funny things. When her visitors were getting ready to leave, her older sister siad " I want you to know I love You very much" to which my mom replied, "whatever." We all cracked up over that. Mom who was a supervisor in a department store for 22 years, tried to fire one of the nurses. She said "I am going to have to let you go". The nurse said you mean you are firing me and mom said "yes, I am afraid so." As sad as the situation is, we still laugh every day.
