"Just give me some butterflies."(This was when she was eating dinner and I asked if she wanted anything else to eat.)
"I want my blue shoes. They feel so good."(She was trying to get out of bed as she was saying this over and over.)
"Water, water, water, water,......................"(She never drinks water, but she did this time.)
"I'm trying to measure this piano bench." "Cissy is going to teach a lesson." "I need to measure this piano bench." (I told her I would measure it for her.) "Then go do it, do it now, go do it." "Do you know how to measure." "I've got to go, now, let's go. I need to measure the piano bench." (Her sisters were gifted pianists. I guess she was trying to help them get ready for teaching lessons.)
All is not gloom and doom. Last evening she was really very calm. She looked up at me when I went into her room and actually looked at me with both eyes open and smiled and said, "Hi." If only we had more days like this!
My brother is coming down to see her this evening. This is the first time he has tried to come since the end of June when he started having trouble with the staph infection in his hip. He is finally off the IV, but will be taking an antibiotic by mouth for a YEAR!
