As everyone knows I go and visit my nanna every Wednesday at the nursing home now there are times when she will have a blank look on her face when we approach but after we speak to her her eyes will brighten and she will appear to know who we are.
Me and mum and my uncle Frank and aunt Pearla visit nan every week in fact Pearla pops in a few times a week after she has finishes work and will help feed nan her breakfast but there is another uncle who rarely visits nan.
I have always had a close relationship with my nan and I don't know if others get this but when I see her I just see nan how she has always been, I do not see the old and frail woman who is no longer able to walk and who's memory has gone due to alazhemiers.
I often get very annoyed when I think about how an uncle of mine doesn't like to visit her because him and his wife say they prefer to remember nanna how she use to be and don't like how she has become...............they stopped visiting her when she started repeating herself.
Last year they turned up on her birthday but not this year last year however I did send them invite the family gathering we had at the nursing home this year I didn't, why not, well they know when her birthday is.................
If for some reason me and mum don't get a chance to visit nan we worry about how she is and feel bad that we couldn't visit her.
