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 and Dad Happy Times.

I cried today

I cried like a baby today. Not the first time or the last I am sure. Mom has the runs so do I need to say more.
And to top that off at 4 this morning I was picking trash up from my yard ,street and neighbors because my dog got out and got in every ones trash. At least it wasn't raining. It rained off and on all day yesterday so thank goodness for that.
I will call moms nurse if she gets any worse . I hope she is better now. I don't thank I have another cleaning in me. Right now she is napping. I love nap time. I think for supper we will have cream of chicken soup or chicken and noodle soup. That will be easy for me to make and easy for her to eat. My son wants to go get Subway sandwich's . I could go for one of those.


  1. I like to laugh at their funny moments too. Alzheimer's is so unpredictable, you never know what they will say or how they will act from day to day, huh?

  2. You are right each day is differant.

  3. Wayne got dehydrated just from not drinking water - so try to get Mom to drink some water if she's ill. Thinking of you.

  4. Just found this blog via another. I have a mom with Alz, too, though she is not at home with me. That, I cannot imagine. I commend you! And anyone who does caregiving knows that sometimes, a good cry is simply required. Hope your mom is feeling better and that you are, too.

  5. Thanks, Karen for visiting our Caregiver Carebuzz blog - the Lighter Side of Caregiving.. if there is such a thing.. although very trying it's good find some laughs.

    Thank you for visiting, Carol
