    The past few months, my visits to Mum have seen her deteriorate quite considerably and become more confused than I have seen her in a long time.
    Last week when I visited, she got up from the table where we were sitting and simply walked away, with no comprehension that I was even there.
    Yesterday, for the first time in ages we were able to sit and chat - yes she was very quiet and dropped off quite a bit, but just sitting and talking was something we haven't done in ages and although Mum could not tell me what she had for her dinner, she could remember all the neighbours from where she lived and grew up as a child and although we did repeat our conversation quite a lot, I came away feeling happier than I have done in a long time and bless her she even thanked me for coming - as if I never would :)
