My MIL had another bad day with in turn made it bad for us. When she got up I thought the day was going good, I got her in the kitchen for coffee and then breakfast. She then washed off and I helped her get dressed for church. So after all of that she got in the living room to take her breathing treatment and rest up before going to church. Then something was said she didn't agree with and it started all over again.
She said we didnt' love her and no one cared and got that mean look in her eyes. My husband talked to her a bit. The she decided she didn't need her oxygen any more and threw the hose down. Well, I told her if she didn't think she needed it I would turn the machine off to save us some electricity. That seems to aggravate her more but she told me to do it so I did.
We made it to church and she was "pouty" all through church. We came out of children's church and my daughter had her already loaded in the truck and the first thing she said was she was going home. Well, we talked all the way to our house trying to convince her that she really wasn't able to go home. So we let it drop and went on and ate dinner and visited with all our kids and grandkids that were here.
After they left, another of her son's came to see her. My hubby, the younger of the two , told him she was upset at us because we didn't think she needed to drive or to go home. He told her the same thing and that made her even more upset but she didn't say anything else about it. She told him some wild stories while he was here, that is for sure. LOL
As my brother-in-law was leaving, she "changed her tune." She asked me why I couldn't get him to stay with her while we wetnt to church tonight. I told her our daughter was headed back to stay with her. Then she wanted to talk about what she was going to eat for supper.
Now it is almost bedtime and nothing else has been said about any of that so it is just a roller coaster ride from the beginning to the end. Just thought I'd update what was happening in our lives with dementia.
God bless you!
