Today we visited my uncle and my grandmother because we didn't get to see them on thanksgiving.

It was a really tough day for my grandmother, and therefore a tough day for my uncle.

Imagine an 18-24 month toddler. Now, add in a LOT of vocabulary, but not much more language comprehension. Stubborn, moody, slaps when you're not doing what she wants, but easy to make smile too. I got to hear and witness "the things a senile person says out of anger and frustration." No logic. No acceptance of limitations.

She was feeling lonely, so everything was colored by that. Aversions to having anything taken away, and aversions to anything involving me leaving, or her going towards the car. She couldn't remember details, but she could remember the feelings and she stayed angry at my uncle for over an hour.

Ultimately, it involved a walk around the neighborhood until she was cold before my uncle could get her into the car without too much fuss.

The experience was exactly like Khai as a toddler, except as a toddler, he didn't know how to say "You're full of shit," and "He doesn't matter." Also, as a toddler, he was more durable and I didn't worry about keeping him from falling down.

Anyway, somewhere in the middle of it, my uncle sliced his finger to the bone. Another one of those... "Maybe this could use 3 or 4 stitches..." but not a "that definitely needs..." Very borderline. eek.

Anyway, my grandmother is safely back at her place, my uncle's getting some butterfly bandages, and everything is back to normal for the evening.

Yah, he said he's never seen it like this for this long. Usually, it's just a couple of minutes, but this was the better part of an afternoon.

Erica's mom said when she worked at a nursing home, and such a big change in aggression would happen, they would test K levels and test for UTI because that was very commonly the cause.

Anyway, very tough for them both. :/

And tough for you, too?


A little tough hearing my grandmother say I'm full of shit and I don't count, but I knew she was just upset.

The big prob for me is that it weighs so heavily on my uncle.

My heart aches thinking about everyone involved.

I wish I had more words. I'll stick with hugs.

hugs are full of win.


Is it March yet?

We're closer to March today than we were yesterday!

Soon. ish.
