Some observations

Mom thought it was still May today and was surprised when I told her it was October.

The background soundtracks on TV programs and films make it impossible for my mother to hear the dialog. There is no way to fix that unfortunately. Consequently, the volume is turned up very loud most of the time and we shout a lot.

Mom's recently been diagnosed with macular degeneration, so on top of the rest of her health problems she's losing her sight. She can no longer read the newspaper and is having difficulty using her iPad.

Having non-stop electricity, Internet and phone service is so nice.

My mother's back yard is peaceful. I haven't heard any explosions or gunfire since I got here.

  1. AsSalamualaikum I'm sure that's very frustrating for your Mother. After a quick search, I saw that there might be some ways for you to make it easier for her to hear the dialogue. http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-amplify-the-dialogue-from-your-hdtv-morrisons-mailbag/ I hope you can come up with something that is good for both of you.
