wings and things


on September 9, 2016

The other day a couple of friends came into the nursing home and Ming and I happened to be there too.

After the usual greetings, banter and catch-up conversations, I told these lovely visitors about how frightening it was a few weeks ago when Anthony lost consciousness on two occasions.

As I was describing all of this to our visitors, in my usual dramatic way, I suddenly realised that Ants was listening intently.

Me: Sorry, Ants, but it totally freaked me out when you lost consciousness.

Anthony: What rubbish!

Me: Sorry I talked about you in front of you, Ants….

Anthony: It was quite interesting actually.

    Julie, I was amazed at how much my mother grasped when we talked in front of her. And it wasn’t a bad thing. It was beautiful to know she understood. Talking in front of someone who 90% of the time seems “out of it,” is natural. I love Anthony’s response and am glad you’ve had a respite again from the terror you experience two weeks ago. I’ve been there and understand how exhausted you must be.

    Anthony is so funny! I love reading these bits and pieces of the conversations the two of you have.

  4. Well I laughed out loud at Anthony’s retort.

    Many years ago, my mother landed in ICU and ended up with a classic ICU psychosis. It was horrifying at the time, and hilarious in retrospect: particularly the golden retriever living under her bed, and her insisting that if I didn’t give her the car keys, she was going to call the cops on me.

    Anyway: my point. She loved hearing us tell the tales of it all, afterward. She didn’t remember a thing, and constantly wanted to have all the little gaps filled in. At one point, she had asked who let the dog in. She’d scowl at me and say, “You know I don’t like dogs!” 🙂
