'suspended between two worlds but

No way to 'live'
I agree....no way to live at all. Still sad to lose
them but a blessed relief for those concerned.
I was thinking on what you said Grace, on you learnt a lot
althopugh words were not spoken. I was rattling my brains
as to what I learnt from my own experience with seeing my friend,
once so vital and with such a sense of humour, hard working,
reduced to not knowing who I was...
and I couldn't think of anything I learnt, except to attempt to
keep my mind sharp as possible...
I already had compassion...didn't learn that from this one experience...
Patience....got that...
Sadness...got that too
...:)
After I'd visit her on a frosty night on my way to
The car when all the stars were out
But I could feel the bitter cold,
She taught me not to complain,
But to appreciate the fact that I could see them.

In her earlier stages of Alzheimer's ..
when trying to explain something and when
She became befuddled, she taught me ..
How I took communication on an minute by minute basis,
for granted..

When alone in a room full of her friends and relatives,
yet not recognising ANY of them
She taught me what I had taken for granted..
Friends there, and yes,
All one had to do was join in-
But, alas, not always so simple;

plus a myriad of other things I took for granted,
She silently pulled me up
And MADE ME THINK,

Since she and I ..
during our times together, couldn't converse,

I had all the time in the world ..when sitting by her
to observe, ie, times when she would pull out a feeble hand
Out from under the bedclothes
and direct it to her face, yet never reaching the face,
she would withdraw her hand again, I remember thinking,
'Maybe a simple thing like her nose..was itchy'
but she couldn't scratch it!
I had never thought of that before,
but I knew now, because she taught me..

She gave me, by her teaching, an appreciation
of what it is like to 'live' every day..
not merely to exist in a
No man's land..like she had to do,
And because of it I have an extra sense
of being alive..

Strange that such a frail old lady,
Altho' lost in a forest of confusion,
had these hidden powers to affect
others, in a silent way..
and for the good...

I am very glad I knew her.

I understand Grace.

I think by nursing relatives as I did at an early
age, those were things I had learnt along the way
lessons such as there is always someone worse off
than oneself, to appreciate what one has and so
on, so forth.

Sadly it is human nature to complain...however
little we have to complain about comparitively
speaking.

Taking the living as an example...

My friend who I met up with during the week.

She is riddled with rheumatoid arthritis, a problem
with her lung, she wears a 'harness' of sorts to
enable her to breathe, she was under threat of
having her foot amputated, yet after surgery she feels
lucky she only has to wear a built up boot....

Yet we had the best time, I have not laughed as much as
in her, and her husband's company that precious day last
week. SHE taught me, laugh in the face of adversity.
Correction...reminded me...as I almost forgot.

That's true
as I also remember, having given up my job
at one stage to look after my late Dad,
after a serious stroke...he suffered..
All I'm saying is because Alzheimer's is so different,
and
The person is already absent yet still retains the
ability to be an example for the good.. merely by her
silent presence... Kinda mysterious.
Anyway, it's over for her now..
A merciful release.
Was wondering El,
How did the cats get on in your absence?
Think all the animals are feeling the tremendous heat these days..
only this evening's news I saw the Zoo keepers hosing down
Elephants and other 4legged fellas!
I believe this weather is to continue for another week!!!!!

Indeed ... I think grand poobah of General Motors back in the day (Durant? or Sloan?) came up with that concept; and it certainly blossomed over time!

I got "tunnel-visioned" and neglected to comment on the sorrowful train wreck tragedy in Quebec. Such a catastrophe for that little town. Looking like the train engineer takes the hit as the direct culprit

Yes, you're right. All of the discussion from all of the perspectives pointed to that fact: at some point, it's time to upgrade. I know firsthand, my old tower is a stand for my current one!

Word play, man.'nay bob'(pronouncing in my dialect of birth)----> nabob. If I had categorically agreed in response to the post you wrote, I guess I could have written 'yay-hoo'(again, in dialect of birth):)

I post for myself. Others don't post for me. I won't throw 'invader' or 'nuisance'(where should the finger pointing stop on that one?) on you; or "pop-pysche" you as others are wont to do.

I'm sure you can reason out:

1. It's nobody's business if folk have patched up things between them; just as it nobody's business if you and anybody have patched up misunderstandings or disagreements between you.

2. The current facet of your hobby toward someone in post-op from 2 procedures very recently with medication included just isn't justified and that's a fact. How could that be a worthy challenge?

3. In time, it will be again; but the hobby pertaining to the taunting and reporting backers that assist taunting and reporting that you're fighting against would have the most impact.

'Morning Grace....
and thanks...the break gave me the chance to meet up with
friends from Manchester which went extremely well and was
wonderful to talk about the old places. We met up at a
half way point and spent a very pleasant day together....
caught up on many things which I had let lapse the rest of
the time.
Ten years. A long long time Grace, I am glad your relative
has found peace of mind and body at long last. My friend
was 'burdened' with this for four years only, terribly sad
to witness.
I say 'burdened' but were they aware?
Regardless of that, so sorry to hear of her passing and may she R.I.P.
Welcome back from your sojourn of reunion,{{{Cuz El}}}!'Tis good to touch old ties as one can do. I'd thot you'd gone to London for 'baby royal watch'?! j/k

I trust you're weathering your heat wave well.:)
