Sherry, my heart goes out to you. Gma has fought the good fight with your help, and it's hard for both of you to face this first holiday season with the changes that have happened. I think you've made the very best decision. We used to always visit my gma late morning on Thanksgiving and late afternoon on Christmas eve, then sometime during Christmas day. We would take her little gifts and sometimes some of her favorite holiday foods, sit and visit, then go on to our festivities with the rest of the family.
I think by the time we finished our visit, she was tired, ready for a nap and ready for us to leave. It worked out well for everyone, and then she was able to participate in the facility's celebrations also.
