Mad As The Hatter

Last night was another of those rare occasions when everyone ate dinner at the table and at the same time, including Mom. Kel was here and sat next to Mom while she ate.

After the kids had left the table, Mom looked at me and with an angry tone to her voice, asked who was the girl sitting next to her. Paula jumped in first and explained Kel was her granddaughter. Mom gave Paula the familiar "you're to stupid to be alive look," so I jumped in adding Kel was my daughter.

That pacified her for a minute, but then she pointed her fork at Kenna's spot and asked who was sitting there. I explained Kenna and Madi were Paula's daughters and the were both her for dinner. Without saying a word, Mom looked down to her plate and continued eating again.

I just don't know what it is. Every time Kel sits next to Mom during dinner it seems to make her angry. I'm not sure if it's frustration not knowing who Kel is, or if it's an invasion of her space.

It makes me wonder though if any other care-givers notice this type of behavior in dementia patients.

Hey guess what? That's three for three now! I'm on a posting roll.

Have a great day, it's Friday!
