Mama can be so sweet and honest as to be childlike. She listens closely, believes everything, and poised to be entertained. It saddens me that she can follow a story, respond appropriately at the right passages, and even provide, albeit short, context sensitive responses, but is not able to sustain memory long enough to engage in conversations in a meaningful way. Keeping this in perspective allows me to keep the hounds of depression at bay.
Mama appears hearty and healthy. The staff continue to impress.
