I see the world around me when I look out of my eyes but
I cannot see myself.
I can only see myself if I have the reflection of a mirror or something
else that projects my image back to me.
My world can become small if I look out of my eyes and
cannot process what I see.
I understand the world around me because my
brain sends a message to my eyes. I learned as I grew that a tree was a tree,
a car is a car, a house is a house.
What does Peggy see, now that her brain is not sending the correct messages to her eyes. Does she remember that a tree is a tree?
I wonder if her eyes recognize that she is Peggy when she sees her reflection in the mirror.
Does her plaque filled brain send the message to her eyes that a chair is a person or a person a chair?
Peggy whispers a lot and seems to talking in a language that only
she and the person that she is whispering with in her mind can understand.
I have many questions about this disease and its effects on the brain. At present, my questions have no answers.
As I continue to try and figure this out it occurs to me.....
It really doesn't matter what Peggy sees or who she is talking with in hushed whispers during her day.
What matters is that she doesn't feel afraid or lonely. She smiles a lot and is content and happy.
If content, cared for and happy is what she sees when she looks from her eyes....
I'm glad that she can still see.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
