My mom was in the sun for the first time in one month. We took her to the garden, she always loved the sun and being outdoors. She cried. Realizing her fragile condition, realizing that she cannot get up and walk around in the garden as she loves doing.
I believe though that the rest at the rehabilitation centre is somehow bringing back into her all those things she always loved doing. Listening to classical music, just sit back and admire nature. In these last years she stopped resting, she stopped everything she always loved, be in the garden, go to the beach, sit in the sun. She was always running around for this or that. And stopped herself from enjoying any activity simply because of a man. Not that he influenced her, I don’t understand why she convinced herself he would not accompany her.
Tomorrow we will have a picnic with her, I want him to be with us. I want her to remember how wonderful it is to be with the family in a purely simple enjoyment.
I can’t wait to see her recover, don’t know to what extent, but I know she will.
