DW was in rehab recently for help with walking. The first time we went to the dining room and after she was seated she began standing then sitting down. She repeated this move several times. I finally got the message.
She seemed to remember that when you first sit down in a restaurant a food server would appear to help you with your order.
She was attempting to get the attention of one of the aides to get her food. She doesn't talk very much and when she does she has trouble speaking.
This taught me to watch and see what she is doing because there might be hidden message in her actions.
Do you have a story to tell along these lines?
Oh, she is home now and doing very well. Bugging the heck out of me. I love it.
