There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Mom Slept Through Halloween

Arkansas won Saturday which was very good. My son went to the game with his girlfriend.Then they had friends over at her house for Halloween. Mom and I watched the game on TV. Actually mom slept in her easy chair during the game and Halloween. I woke her up to feed her .Than I had to wake her up so I could put her in bed to change her and she took a nap. Got her up to feed her supper and than she slept till bedtime in her easy chair. So I would say Saturday was a lazy day. I did mow Friday. It was not raining and very sunny. I just had to do something outside. Now the yard is ready for winter.

Sunday was about the same. My son was home most of the day and We all napped and watched TV. I did run to the store for a few things.

Mom is still eating her Oatmeal , soup, yogurt and milkshakes and smoothies good. It takes a very long time to get her to drink but she is drinking. Anything she has to chew is out of the question. If I keep shoveling down the soft stuff she keeps taking it.

The escape artist of a dog got out last night but did not get in the trash and it is trash day so there is lots of trash by the curbs. I guess I will have to chain him up again tonight.

Time to go get mom out of bed so she can go back to sleep in her easy chair. Maybe I will nap on the sofa. Sounds like a good idea to me.This could become a habit.

Don't forget November is Alz's Awareness Month


  1. Hi sweet Karen..... it sounds like you had a good weekend of football, resting, mowing and having your son around on Sunday.

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I'm glad your mom is resting all night, that's a big blessing!
    Hugs and prayers to you,

  2. Glad to hear you had a nice, relaxing halloween!

  3. My daddy slept through Halloween, too! Made me so sad this year. He can no longer be taken out for dinner, etc. This has made me incredibly sad as this year we will be eating Thanksgiving away from my home.

    Blessings to you sweet one. Your heart is so big...somewhere deep inside your Momma she knows your sacrifices.
