One year ago, Bob had a stroke. Just seeing that date, Oct. 21, on the calendar floods me with emotion...
Yesterday, I asked Bob if he knew what day it was. He looked confused. So I said, "It's October 21st."
Still, he was confused. I said, "One year ago today, you had a stroke."
He said, "Oh."
He was quiet for awhile then asked, "Months?"
I said, "Twelve months ago. You had a stroke twelve months ago today."
He was quiet again, then he shrugged his unaffected shoulder and said, "Oh well! Happy New Year!"
