Allie's Journey

For the next several months this will be dedicated to information pertinent to Allene M. Maddock. Her care has been assumed by Hospice as of 06Apr12.

Please feel free to call or write her. If you call be patient and take time to explain who you are. Currently she remembers, but you have to help her focus so she truly knows who she is talking to at the moment. We have to do this too, and I frequently say something like, "Yes this is Scott, your oldest."

Her phone is area code two-zero-six, and the number is 216 3816.

Her Address:

Tough Audience

Eric and James picked up Mom for a trip to Volunteer Park where I was involved in the Seattle Outdoor Theatre Festival, playing several characters in MacBeth and Julius Caesar with Last Leaf Productions.

Mom didn't want to bring the wheelchair, which turned out to be a mistake as they went to the wrong stage for the 5pm show, which wore out Mom and Eric who carried her to the Ampitheater lawn. I caught up with them after the show relaxing in the sun. It got to be a bit much and Eric and I carried her back up to the shade and visited for a while longer. Then they bundled her up into James' truck and took her back to Queen Ann Manor.

She seemed to have lost a lot of strength and tone. From the disease, the muggy heat, or both. It was a bit of work for all involved, we had to be tough as us northwesters aren't acclimated to the hot.
