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

Happy Halloween!!!!

We had a few trick -or- treaters last night. I am sure a lot more will come tonight. It has been very cold here in the mornings but nice during the day. We had to turn the furnace on. And I do hate that. It only runs a little while in the morning so that is good.
Mom has a little diaper rash in one spot so the nurse gave me some good cream with lots of zinc in it. Zinc is the key. Mom used to tear her skin on her arms so easy. She was so banged up and this was when she was getting around on her own. The doc. told her to start taking 100mg. of Zinc a day and her skin healed right up. My brother has started doing the same thing. He is only around 65 yrs old .But his skin is so thin. I told him to start taking Zinc. Don't think he has yet. If you have this problem ask your doc. about the mg. I might be wrong on that. Ask him anyway to see if it is right for you. And have a great Halloween. BOO!!!


  1. Sorry your mom is in stage 7. You take such good care of her. I think Zinc cream is also used for burns.

  2. Happy Halloween to you too! We haven't turned our heater on yet, but it has gotten cooler in the mornings.
    That's a good hint about the zinc. Unfortunately our skin gets so thin as we age.

  3. Happy Halloween Karen.
    Nice to know that zinc has been such a help to your mom. Sure beats using drugs, doesn't it?


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