I can’t believe it’s been one year since this video was taken. Mom has come along way since then, I am so proud of how far she has come. The best part is seeing some of your old self-come back, now don’t get me wrong she has changed a lot, she is never going to be the mom I remember, there has been too much brain damage and dementia that has taken a lot of her away, but she has become someone who is a newer version of herself. She’s funny, quirky, and stubborn and ornery. She’s lost her filter, so she says what she thinks without any worries of people’s reaction. SO it makes it a little dangerous when I do videos with her because I never know what she’s going to say. Makes is exciting and frightening at the same time.
I look forward to this new journey with her and what we will encounter and what challenges we face. We will do it together as a family (my husband & myself) Do I miss my old mom? yes absolutley, but I cherish every moment I have with her. I know one day she won’t be here and I know that will hit hard. I will be crushed. But I also know that right now I’m doing whatever I can for her to have the best life she can have. Filled with love, Netflix, no stress.
I wonder what she will be like a year from now. It will be interesting. A new adventure. I cherish and appreciate my family and my friends (Teresa) for all your support and love with sharing this journey with Mom and I. Lots of love and hugs from both Mom & I
