With Spring Break just around the corner, I really have not been too excited to do school work! Good things for weekends! I visited Edith again this past Wednesday. It was really nice. We are now past that kind of akward point. Now it really isnt so much small talk. I did not stay there that long because she had to go to church. We decided that Wednesdays aren't the best. So, switching to Mondays is what we thought of. That leads to today-- but that I'll talk about a little later. I just wanted to comment on something that stood out last Wed. to me. As I was making my way around the crazy confusing Lyngblomsten, I was a little lost, I have to admit, one of the nurses there asked me if I was there to see Edith, I replied with a "yes, I am".. kind of surprised! I must have looked really lost because seh was like, she has been talking about you all day and is all ready for you! I thought that was so nice! I mean, I guess she really doesn't have much to talk to the nurses about, but I really found it neat that she rememberd my name and where I was from, and found it important enough to tell her nurse! Going into this I knew what it wasn't goign to be something that I would have to fill in where I was needed but a personal commitment. I am commiting myself to another person who we both have to count on each other. I think having this relationship with this lady is great. I am also building communication skills. Today would have been the third day of volunteering. Edith and I decided that i would call before I came every time just incase something in her schedule came up. I called, and the nurse answered. Turns out, she hasn't been feeling good the past few days and I need to reschedule with her. I really hope that the nurse I talked to will tell Edith that I called and was planning on coming, but since she didn't feel good they told me not to! I am still kind of worried about it! It brings me back to Wednesday, I know she has been planning on me visiting!
Nothing really new and exciting in the nursing home volunteering.. but, I am looking forward to what is to come!
