Today was our 54th anniversary. My husband with dementia had no clue. Two weeks ago he stood up in church and announced that we had and "event" but couldn't remember what it was. He asked me, and at the time I had no idea what he had in mind. Then he said something about 25 years, so I figured out he was talking about our anniversary. We talked about the things we used to do, etc., and went down memory lane when we got home. Then nothing else. I didn't bring it up, since he gets so confused. But, today I had a card ready, but he would have been upset if I had given it to him and he didn't have one. For dinner I fixed the fancy food that we used to have to celebrate our anniversary years ago, thinking it might ring a bell, but it didn't. Was I correct in letting the day slide by, or should I have made a big deal out of it? (Sorry to take up so much space)
Yes, you were correct to let the actual Anniversary day slide.
Let us wish you a Happy 54th Anniversary :)
