Dear Oma, please dont cook alone, wait for me or for my mama to help you
Dear Oma, please dont cry in front of me, I dont really know what to do and it hurts me to see you crying
Dear Oma, why do you keep on asking where the opa is? I already told you a hundred times and more that he is in the hospital.
Dear Oma, why do you always want to go home? Dont you know it is better if you are with us and not all alone?
Dear Oma, you could stay with us, I promise I will take care of you
Dear Oma, please drink something, please eat something, please do this for me
Dear Oma, you could also call me if you need something, I am already old enough to do things for you
Dear Oma, please hold my hand because I want to show you something someplace
Dear Oma, could you draw me a flower, could you look for the red crayon, could we stay like this doing things together for a long time?
Dear Oma, please walk slowly, please sit down, please rest, please take care of yourself
Dear Oma, could you cook for us that your special noodle with tomato sauce? I could help you, you know
Dear Oma, what are you doing if you are at home and alone? I worry about you
Dear Oma, are you just on the phone with mama? Was it worry or panic I heard in her voice? I want to talk to you, too
Dear Oma, why did you forget who I am this morning? I was with you the whole night and you knew me then
Dear Oma, I am MC, I am MC, I am MC
Dear Oma, Ich hab dich lieb (I love you)
I am sharing some of the running thoughts buzzing around MC's head that she continually bursts out to me while opa is in the hospital and how our oma, who is suffering from acute alzheimer, is coping with all the changes. MC is really very much affected and I think she's also feeling a bit of the stress we are all feeling. But there is good news, opa would be discharged tomorrow and I am feeling much better. And tonight, the kids are allowed to visit him, a surprise visit! I hope and pray everything would run smoothly.
