Mom and I went grocery shopping today! Mom used her walker this time and walked through the house, down the ramp and was able to get herself into the car. She did the reverse when we got home. I'm so proud of her! I think the physical therapy is helping as is the shoe lift. She didn't seem to be in such intense pain as she was in the past, but she did get a little breathless. This is good progress I think.
I was reading about something called an Alzheimer's garden in one of the many newsletters that I receive. It allows the person with ALZ to wander through a garden safely; a wonderful concept I think.
I think I've figured out that when Mom is bored she will ask questions repeatedly so I try to divert her attention and that seems to help. She was restless last night I think because she napped during the day off and on.
The sun is out today, finally. It's still pretty cool though. I noticed that our crabapple trees have buds that are poised to burst open as soon as we get a stretch of nice weather. I can't wait.
