We have been gradually building up more support, and have arrived at a point where the week holds quite a lot of activity for Mum now, what with AS Group, Day Care and the rest. Just telling family why all this is all necessary, with her slow but noticeable decline WHEN, I go this morning to organise her shower, change her clothes, get her day sorted out etc etc etc, and there she is, duster in hand, bright as a button! She had showered and changed some of her clothes, blow-dried her hair ...... totally normal, a new woman! So WHY? Have we been mistaken all along then? Is she going to be OK again now? But 5 minutes later, at 8.30am, we saw the same neighbour off out to walk her dog, which Mum remarked upon. Thirty seconds later, when I asked her to give something to this neighbour when she called by, Mum said that it would be later on, because she was never, ever out of bed before midday!! (even though we had just seen her!).
