She never really liked me, although she loved me. I was her oldest daughter, and we argued over everything. The l960s were tumultuous. Then during one of my twice-a-year visits, she and I had a good time. She had forgotten she didn't like me. Then...she was diagnosed with dementia, and we had a window of opportunity to share some time and make some memories. I had known for several years, but the family wasn't seeing it in the same way. When you visit twice a year, you notice small changes, but when you live with it 24/7, those changes don't seem so obvious. We did make memories in the time we were given---some bad, but most good.Come let me tell you Mother's story and our family's journey through dementia.Patsy Barnes has been a nurse for forty years, thirty-fourin emergency medicine and six in hospice.
