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

Somebody Crapped On Me

My mom was eating breakfast . I think your new meds. are working she is eating and talking . Not really making sense but wide awake. That is good.
My brother came to visit and when he touched her she yelled "Help Somebody Crapped On Me".
It was very funny . I love it when she is this way. I hate it when she is doped up.
We had a very bad ice storm this pass winter and we were without power for 3 or 4 days. Well one morning it was 34 degrees in the house . So I loaded mom up and put her in a nursing home for the remaning days without power. Not to mention the fact that it cost $350.00 a day they gave her so much med. to make her nice. I give her nice med. on the days the aid and nurse is coming but not everyday . Only enough to keep her from being scared and nervous. Anyway when I got her back she was a Zombie for 2 days and dehyidrated. I pray I never have to put her in a nursing home. I understand it is hard on the nurses to care for so many people . But I don't want my mommy in there.
