I don't think it registered, or if it did she soon forgot. Her decline since her hospital stay has really shocked us.@White Rose @Vitesse I say the same thing, I am surprised and dissapointed by how hard I find it to be calm and patient with mum.
Today being a prime example even after my little treat yesterday I have been so het up today. I know mum cant help it and doesnt choose to be like that, but my patience has been tried and failed quite a few times today due to mum constantly saying one thing then changing to opposite and constantly moaning and wanting to argue with me over anything and everything and blame it all on me then say sorry only to start again.
Seems like today has been the day for it.
@CardiffGirlInEssex very good idea of your aunt to take photo of them along. Bit of an awkward moment mum saying aunt is old woman tho, mum said something similar when we visited a care home a few weeks ago said they were all old and they were similar age to mum. Was your mum ok when she looked in mirror? Was she shovked by how looked or did it not really register?
