Since Dad is in rehab, we have not been able to leave Mom alone. We haven't for several years, but I don't think she realized until Dad was in the hospital. My brother told her over and over and over probably 150 times, "you can never be left alone, ever". That was last Wed. Today, when her sister came in so I could go to work, Mom said, you get to be my babysitter today. I have to have babysitters now. She was smiling. I was shocked. Yay!
