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.

Waiting on the Aid

Hello all! I have nothing really to post. Everything is the same. Chilly outside, Mom sitting in her wheelchair waiting for the Aid to come and give her a bath and shampoo. My son is sleeping due to the 3 day weekend no classes today. He was sad the Cowboys lost to the Vikings yesterday. And said he was tired of football so did not watch the Chargers and Jets. I think if the Cowboys would of won he would not be tired of football.
My inside outside cat is begging to go out. He just came in 5 min's. ago. Just like a man a pain in the bottom.
Are any of you on Facebook? Since joining Facebook I have connected with a lot of friends from school. It is great fun to look into there lives. Facebook is also a way to see what is going on in my family that I would not really know if not on Facebook. A nice way to be nosey without them really knowing it. My son won't let me be his friend but his girlfriend is my friend . So Ha! to him.
The aid just came so better get off of here and pretend to be doing something constructive.


  1. I'm on facebook, bout live there! I see you have an aide for your mom. Is that through a hospice or another caregiver agencie? My mom has an aide that comes 3 times a week, about 7 in the morning to give her a sponge bath. I don't get her up until about 9, then she is only up for 2 to 3 hours and back to bed. She used to get up for supper too, but I have had to cut down to the once a day, getting to difficult for both of us to move her back and forth more then once. I will look for you on facebook!

  2. ok, I am not going to be able to find you with just your first name on facebook! So, my name is Donna Webb, look me up! :D

  3. There are over 400 Donna Webbs on facebook :) my email is
    Our Hospice aid comes twice a week. I get her up around 9 and she stays up till lunch than I put her down to change her and she takes a long nap till supper sometimes .Than I get her up and she stays up till 9 or 10.If something on Tv we stay up later. She don't mind just naps in the easy chair.

  4. I'm staying off of Facebook because I already spend too much time blogging and I'm afraid I might never get off the computer if I started it. But, I know many people who love it. Like your mom's haircut from a few posts back. You are such a good daughter.

  5. No, I'm not on Facebook. I was for a few days but got off. I'd rather blog.
    My team the Ravens didn't win their game either, but now I'm hoping for the Jets.

  6. lol over 400, just did a search, mine is the first one, it is the picture of the teddy bear, called The Teddy Bear Waltz, that is the name of my blogsite.

  7. Your cat--LOL I am on FB, but it iis a bit much for me, though I did reconnect with a few relatives, long lost to my life. It is fun to peek into their lives and a niece who,well, if her parents saw what I see, the hair/make-up, sexy pose and desire to move OUT---LOL, kids.

  8. I go crazy sometimes on Facebook reading my neices stuff and her pictures. That is why my son won't let me be his friend. He knows I will bug him about everything.

  9. Hi Karen....... I'm on F/B, but I'm more of a lurker than a contributor.
    I do enjoy hearing what's going on with different people....

  10. I'm watching a friend wait in a similar situation right now. There's nothing easy to being a caregiver during such moments. Heart wrenching to say the least.

    Good luck.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
