“I have trouble remembering things”

My mother is the nicest person in the world, and has dementia. She was also in a coma for ~10 days after falling down a flight of stairs in 2015, which eventually resulted in both of us being patients in the same hospital at the same time.

During a lucid moment last week one of my sisters asked her why she didn’t do something, and mom replied, “I have trouble remembering things.” :)
