Well, it's set up for Mom to try daycare on Tuesday at 8:30 am until about 2:00 pm. I hope everything goes well. I'm going to try to work from home that day so that I can be there in case. Mom has been asking about it, and about the woman and seems to want to be with her. I hope Mom doesn't throw a fit though when she sees that Joyce is just going to pick Mom up and take her to the center and then bring her home later. How can I turn off my worry about this? And why am I worried so much about this? If I had a kid, and I dropped them off at daycare would I worry and obsess about it this much?

Also, Mom's appetite seems to be back. She is actually asking for lunch and dinner nowadays. It must have been the UTI that killed her appetite, or else this is just part of the rollercoaster ride that is AD.

I hope it goes well for you and your Mom! The first time I took my mom to daycare, I cried as I left.

I haven't had mom to daycare, but I have taken my kids to preschool. I felt like I had abandoned them and cried all the way home.

Hang in there. Your mom seems willing to participate. If my mom were like that, I'd run with it.

Thanks for the encouragement Annie and Betsy. I hope everything goes OK. I have whittled down my sick days to nearly none and have very little vacation left. My manager is not very understanding either. So I hope this works out.

I'll be thinking about you on Tuesday. Hope all goes well.

Early on when I would leave dad with an aide he would want to go with me. But I learned that he settled down not long after I left. I also learned my own discomfort fed his, too, so the more matter-of-fact I am the better.
