Phone Calls, Pizza, and Music: a Good Day

Friday was pizza day in Memory Care. Dad surprised us by eating four slices of pizza, something he hasn't done in a very long time.

Just after eating, Dad was surprised by a phone call from his brother, John. The smile on his face was priceless.

Sis and I also took Dad his new iPod Shuffle and a new set of earphones. I had loaded up the Shuffle with a lot of Dad's favorite songs. We're hoping this will help the aides calm Dad down on those days when he is agitated and hyper.

We tried it out on him, and he seemed okay with it. I think there was just too much going on around us for him to concentrate. Plus, we were there so all he wanted to do was talk to us. :)

As time goes on, we'll see how he does with it. We've got our fingers crossed.
