That is Not Necessary






“I’ll get you a box of chocolates if you give me a cookie.”

“I’m starving.”

“I need a cookie, I haven’t eaten in a week.”


These are the things Gpa will tell me to  get a cookie.

It is good that his appetite is increasing, but what a challenge to keep him full.

We’ve been very lucky in the bathroom.  Not too many messes.  I was reminded when we went and his depends were full, some fell on the floor and as I was having him sit down, some on the seat.  So I started yelling to not sit down.

After I got that cleaned up and had him sitting.  I squatted to clean up the mess on the floor and he moved his foot into the mess.  I yelled to stop, stop, stop.

He looked at me and said, “What is wrong with you?  All this is not necessary.”

I wish it weren’t.  He doesn’t hear well and now he’s having a harder time comprehending what I am saying.

So even after eating a cookie, he will tell me he hasn’t, or he’ll be sitting in wet pants and not be able to tell me.  I am so glad we have this extra time together because of his moments of clarity are precious.

Hope you are having a great day!
