I had lunch with my mother today.  I took two days off from visiting her, still smarting over our argument about the Brain Gymnasium.  I've had a good talking to, to myself and have come to peace with acknowledging that she is 94 years old and she has earned the right to live her last years any way she  wants.  If she wants to live it sitting in her chair watching reading and watching TV, thinking that her brain was "just fine," that is her right.

And if I'm honest with myself, if I were in her position, I would probably make the same decision and be very angry with my kids if they kept insisting that I go do stuff I don't want to do, whether it's good for me or not.

As long as I can stay in this mindset, I think we will have a much richer relationship than we have had, when I'm trying to get her to find some sort of connection at Atria.

We saw the manager of Atria while we were at lunch today and he thanked me for the box of chocolates I brought back from Ukraine.  He said he has the chocolates behind his desk, which tells me maybe he didn't get the message that this was candy for everyone.  But owell.

[Funny observation:  I asked my mother if she had a hair appointment today.  She unhesitatingly said "Yes, at 1:30."  THAT she can remember!]

Tonight we went to see a production of Les Miserables.   This is the third time I've seen the show this year, first the movie, then a production at Music Circus in Sacramento and tonight by the Woodland Opera House. Each had its good and bad points.  The movie's bad point was Russell Crowe.  I don't think I had any complaints about the Music Circus production.  Tonight's was very good.  It is usually difficult to get good male voices for community theater productions and they had a whole stage of excellent male voices, especially in the leading roles.

My main complaint about the show, though, was the costumes.   They were beautiful, but I question if they were appropriate.  They dressed the bishop in white (which is a color only the pope wears) and while the men's costumes were gorgeous and well made, they looked more llike upper class merchants of the period rather than poor students.

We agreed that our favorite character was Gavrosh, age 6, who took command of the stage.  And little Cosette had the longest bio in the program.   She is only 6, but has acted extensively in community theater and is about to take off on a Sound of Music concert tour to Austria!

How do you top that at age 7 or 8?

It's good that your mother still reads. Watch for signs that she's getting impatient with it. It can mean there's another problem you can't see.

I base my theories on my mother and her sisters, who were the oldest women I know. The oldest -- and smartest -- of them all exhibited symptoms of Alzheimer's, though another sister thought it was depression. She might have been right.

If her memory prevented her from enjoying a book, if declining eyesight kept her from seeing it, my Aunt D would have been furious. And if she couldn't fix it, she might well have become depressed.

Doctors don't always see this, because they are missing about 70 years of experience with the patient.
