Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

I need the lifts my spirit needs lifting......hurry back sun.

My Mom is in a nursing home....she has Alzheimer's disease. She fell two weeks ago and broke her arm. I got a call yesterday that she fell again. She's ok.. Seems she tries to get out of her bed and falls over the guards they have on each side. You've got to understand that my Mom is a funny woman. She's a happy go lucky older person with alzheimers. She sings and laughs and is like a five year old child. She's actually quite entertaining. Altho it breaks my heart that she is ridden with this disease and for all intents and purposes I've lost the mother i've known all my life, I'm happy that she is happy! Getting back to the phone call...I made the suggestion to the social worker that maybe, she may need a lower bed. I mean aren't they the ones in the business and should maybe consider that there is something wrong with this picture and take some corrective action so maybe, just maybe she won't fall out of bed again. Well...I got them to give her a lower bed. Hopefully she won't be falling anymore, at least out of bed. Bless ya Mom!
