Like Sand Through An Hour Glass, Wait, What Time Is It?

Wrist watch
I've been wondering for a few days now, but yesterday it became clear, Mom can no longer tell time.

During breakfast Mom asked me what time it was. I told her it was 10:20. Mom replied, " oh I thought it was ten to four". "I thought I had slept all day". Then she gave a quick laugh and started eating.

Then last night at dinner she looked at her watch and again asked what time it was. Paula told her the time and Mom gave Paula a look like she was a blooming idiot and asked again.

Needless to say, by the time Mom was done asking what time it was, setting her watch and winding her self winder, everyone else was done eating.

It's hard to see her mind going like this. Being a care giver for a parent is rewarding, but it's a lot tougher than I ever imagined.
