I saw an article today about a woman in New Zeland who surfaced from her dementia for one day, was completely lucid and knew everything about the people who cared for her, where she lived etc. Kind of wish my mum could have the same lucid day that this lady did. It'd be nice to be able to have a conversation and hear her laugh again. The article said this lady was proof that dementia patients are fully aware of what's going on around them. if it is true I can't help worry that my mum would be very angry with me for her being in a care home. I guess it'd be worth it though for just one 'normal' day. Another part of me hopes that she's not aware like the article states. If she was, she'd be so upset about the way is she and where she is. She sometimes looks at me in a certain way and it makes me think that inside she's furious with me for her situation. It's easier to believe she's completely oblivious to it all and therefore content.
