You all know what I'm talking about...It's that special way your mom smells.
You don't really notice it until they are no longer there...like when mom comes for a visit,
The guest room smell like her perfume for several hours after she goes home.
When she was in the Altru Hosptial in Grand Forks...she was so very ill.
One evening after our daughter and I had hugged her Good Night,
Emily said, "You know, she didn't really smell like Grammy tonight."
Later we found our that her NG tube had worked its way out of place
and was in her lung.
It's no wonder...
When she moved to the Heartland Care Center in Devils Lake,
I was able to stay in her apartment.
Even after being away for 5 weeks, when I unlocked the door...
I could smell my mom's perfume.
I've stayed there several times now...
and her scent has faded. I guess it smells more like me?
I brew coffee...
I have my own personal care products...
I clean with products that I brought from home...
I brought her home yesterday.
She has her own four wheel walker...that she refers to as her buggy.
We are washing her clothes and cooking the food she likes.
She will be using her personal care products.
My Mother's Scent has returned.
