She had gone to a senior center to hook up with a bunch of other women for their monthly "Lunch Bunch" meeting. Each month they meet at the senior center building, just about a block from my mom's house and the group divides up and a group of four will ride with one person. Apparently my mom drove to the center and hopped out of her car and went into the center to see if her friend was there. Her friend was in the center along with the rest of the group so they divided up and off they went to a restaurant for lunch.
When they returned to the center the receptionist came out, when she saw my mom, and handed my mother the keys to her car. Apparently, when my mother hopped out of the car, my mom had left her car running until someone noticed it had been running for how long? I didn't find that out.
So now what?
It wasn't but 3 months ago the doctor had her tested and said there was just a teeny weeny bit of brain dementia …
