(I arrived in the morning and the aide said Mother had been crying) Heather: Mother, why are you crying?
“I have a broken heart.”
(Mother would or could not explain why.)
(Heather: Mother, what are you thinking?)
“How we can get along? Well, I want to stay together. I don’t want to be yanked away.”
(Heather: Mother, the staff will not take you away from your company. They like you to have visitors here. They will not tell me to leave.)
“Yves [a certified nurses aide at Kent Regency], he is going to give me a book. I think that is what he said.”
