Mom and Her Phone

She frequently loses it. Today she called me (she has no land line, so naturally she was calling on her cell). During the call, she said "Oh no, I can't find my cell phone". I said "Mom, you're talking on it right now." "Oh yeah" she said.

Mom is 81 now. I have noticed mental slips like this the last year or so, but they appear to be getting a bit worse. My dad declined mentally in his last 6 months or so, I didn't noticed his mind going before that. Mom I don't know about. She goes to the doctor regularly, and her mind is still lot sharper than my dad's toward the end.
