It has been a long time since I wrote a post about Gary’s mom. She has Dementia and is currently living with Gary’s younger brother in Florida near Pensacola. For those of you who wish to know more about her, you are welcome to read these posts I wrote last year –
You may remember, we took Gary’s mom from the younger brother’s home to the older brother’s home in Orlando right before Christmas last year. She stayed with the older brother until we took her back to the younger brother in late March this year.
Prior to our actual move from Pensacola, Florida to Tampa, Florida, I had a consultation with an Oncologist at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. That consultation resulted in subsequent tests later that same week. There were tests scheduled in one day and it literally took all day to complete them. A couple of these test involved having to spend several hours in between them and Gary and his mom needed to do something while I was having the actual tests.
We were fortunate that Moffitt Cancer Center has specific areas in their hospital for just that; finding something to do. While I was having my bone scan, Gary and his mom spent time coloring and making bracelets. I wanted to share a few pictures with you of Gary’s mom – my mother in law. She is 94 and is in great physical heath and she can walk faster than me. There is the Dementia that causes issues at times, but that day while waiting for me, she was happy coloring and making her bracelets.
And do you see the important message she had for me?
