My grandma is currently in respite care (for those unfamiliar, it is essentially a short-stay 'low-care' nursing home). This afternoon when my son and I went to visit her we met a lovely lady on her way out to feed the birds (/have a smoke!), and my 2.5 year old was pretty impressed with her as he has had a bird obsession for a long time. She was telling us she is leaving tomorrow, and my grandma explained she is going to a hospice as she has cancer and clearly doesn't have long to go. My grandma was telling her about how she always saved scraps for 'her magpies' and the lady asked my grandma if she would feed the birds for her once she was gone. Anyway... my son painted some plaster animals yesterday, one of which was a bird, and he kept talking about 'the bird lady' until he went to sleep. Would it be weird if we took in the ornament he painted for her? He told me earlier he wanted to share his bird stickers with her . I thought it was a sweet idea (though we ran out of bird stickers!) but I didn't know if it would be odd, I know the lady has very limited family remaining/travelling to spend her last days with her and I thought it would be nice for her to know she was in peoples thoughts..
