Alzheimer’s is a deadly serious topic, but sometimes laughter is the best medicine. So I’ll make a “Silly Saturdays” post weekly with some amusing story about Ed, giving us a chance to smile in the midst of our somber life situation. Please send me your own “silly” stories and I’ll post them, too.
As I’ve mentioned in previous “Silly Saturday” posts, Ed had a bad appetite all his life and was always seriously underweight. And his appetite got even worse when he was living at the Alois Center. One day when an aide was trying to feed him he said he wasn’t hungry. The aide then told him, “Marie is worried that you aren’t eating enough.”
He immediately responded, “If Marie doesn’t think I’m eating enough have her come here herself and tell me!”
The aide laughed, Ed laughed and I laughed, too, when I heard about it!
