I think I will just get up and walk home, I don’t like this place anymore she said looking out the front window of the home they had lived in for thirty years, just where is the car I had when you brought me here, I am going to need it if I am walking home, she said to him with a blank look on her face.
You are home Dear he said, this is our home, no it isn’t and I don’t understand why you left me here all alone with these strange people all around me, you never come to visit and I sit here all by myself, but Dear I have sat here with you all day long, you have not been by yourself, she just stared at him with a vacant look in her eyes.
I can’t eat anymore, you don’t have to feed me because I am not a baby, I will not eat she said as she slapped the fork away from her face, he gently laid it down only for her to pick up the fork and continue to eat. I told you that I can’t eat anymore she yelled and rose to leave the table, he attempted to help her only to hear her yell, Why are you taking me away I have not even got my dinner yet.
After dessert she said again that she was leaving to walk home, he said OK Dear but first do you want to watch some TV with me, Yes that will work, I like this show.
It’s been a long day folks, as I have said before Alzheimer’s is a cruel disease and many prayers are needed for the people suffering to deal with it.
