Today I finally got Mom to agree to go into the house. She seemed quite worried about whether it would work (she has rejected me several times and chosen to sit in the car when we got here), and then when we got inside and I transferred her to her chair, she just smiled. Then she told me to open the door so it would be light (of course), and sort of settled.
After a short while, I was able to get her to agree to have something to eat and drink and recline the chair. Then she really settled. We were there for nearly 4 hours, Lonnie came over to visit for a couple and then we packed up and went back to the home.
One of the aides asked where we had been, she said "Oklahoma!" (Remember we are in Kansas and they don't seem to know that Oklahoma is 20 miles south) When asked if she had fun, she said yes! I think we might have to do it again soon. We will see if she is totally exhausted tomorrow.
