Came home last night in a snow storm.
Yujiro came to my classroom after work and we talked.
He had spent the day talking to the Social Workers at the city office and getting a lot of advice. Then they recommended a local doctor who deals with dementia - and he phoned the clinic and got an urgent appointment for this coming Wednesday - for me and him. To talk about Okaasan and her care, and how or whether we can actually GET her into that building...what white lies do you have to tell to get a lady into a clinic when she thinks nothing is wrong...
So. I felt he had tried his utmost to come to grips with all of this.
And I agreed to come home and do it all together again.
He isn't 100% out of the dog house yet. He is still a man who hit someone in anger.
But I feel he is really making an effort and that some kind of progress is being made.
We DO wonder though how Okaasan will react to me being back in the house. Will she remember the fight? Will she go back to: Amanda is the stuff thief?
I was in the toilet just now and she was in the kitchen...I came out of the toilet and up the stairs SO quickly (painfully on my bad knee) so she wouldn't see me.
I'd prefer to hide on the second floor until tomorrow when we can see the doctor and ask his advice...but if I meet here, I meet her...it can't be helped. Just a cheerful "Hello" and carry on as normal?
I guess so.
But thankyou to all friends, students who have sent me supportive messages the past few days - in e mails and phone calls, only 2 people actually posted messages here..but about 10 people sent me love in other ways....thankyou.
I think this will happen again actually....so I feel we will all be back here again sometime...and that is a sad thought.
