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.
WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US
1 John 4: 9-10

In The Arms Of Jesus

Mom passed away yesterday Oct. 18th around 8:46am. It was a bit of a surprise I was not expecting it to happen so fast. And she just all of a sudden started breathing loudly and I thought she needed more pain meds. But the nurse said her heart beat was very faint and they could not get a blood pressure reading so she told me it would be soon. I called everyone to come but no on made it in time. My boyfriend was there with me so I was not alone. He is new but that is another story. Anyway I am very pleased at how peaceful she went. And I think the Lord for all he has done and the blessing's he has gave to use over the years. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

  7. Karen,
    I am so sorry for your loss. You have taken such good care of your mom. I'm glad you were with her til the end and she was at peace. Your blog has been an inspiration for all of us who have been down the Alzheimer's road. It was two years ago today that my own mom passed away.
    My heart goes out to you and my thoughts are with you. I wish you peace in the days ahead and I pray that the happy times you shared with your dear Mother will comfort you.
    Hugs,
    Kim

    Gentle hugs,

  17. I am certain that as your mother closed her eyes here on earth, she opened to see Her Lord and Savior. You were a most caring and compassionate caregiver to your mom. May you be blessed in wonderful and unexpected ways in the days to come.
