What's Dementia, Mama?

I asked Mama what she knew about Alzheimer's Or Dementia; she didn't really want to talk about it. Her response was "I like what I am & that's it". Then she broke out into singing an original version of "Some of These Days" with her own special lyrics! 
I usually don't put her on the spot about this subject, but I just wanted her take on it at this particular moment.
Some days that's how we deal with it... 


  1. Boy that's a tough one to ask her but her reaction is so real. And the song is priceless!

  2. Thanks, yes it was tough, but I feel her out & see what she can handle. She may be able to deal with a tough question or totally ignore it & change the subject. I always have to be aware of her feelings & sensitive to her reactions.
