Aging

Today Mom has called or rather had someone call for me twice. This morning I think what happened is they got her up for breakfast and she wasn’t really ready to get up, balked, was irritable about it and declared she did not feel good. Very upset but did finally eat a bit of breakfast.
Glen had an appointment so I left to have breakfast and take Glen. Wound up being busy with various things all day.
Around 7:00pm I got a call from the front desk. Mom was concerned they might send her to the hospital and wanted me to come. I stopped at the nursing office to find out there was nothing wrong and they had no idea what might be worrying her. Well they had taken her temp, put some lotion on her hand as she keeps scratching at the healing scar. Because they did not say anything she jumped to the conclusion that something was wrong. Now one would expect just the opposite, nothing said, nothing wrong. Sometimes I wonder if she WANTS something to be wrong.
I’m trying so hard to be responsive to her needs but it I’d hard to not lose patience with her.
