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

Packed Full Of Info.

Hi, everyone. It is 9 degrees out today. Burrr . We still have snow from Christmas . Just a little but it won't melt. I am ready for spring.

I was changing mom the other day and she said "I going to bite you" So I said " I'll bite you back" and she just started laughing. That was cool.

I have some book's and a CD with some great info. on caregiving for Alz's. patients. It is from 2008 but still full of good stuff . If one of you wonderful blogger friends of mine what them give me a yell at and I will send them to you. First come first serve. It is not a giveaway. Just a regift. My newphew gave them to me along time ago and they have helped me alot. Now time to pass them on.


  1. It's freezing here, too! I'm longing for Spring.

    My daddy said he didn't need my Christmas gift. I said "Trust me! You do!"

    It was new flannel pants.

    Love to you~


  2. Hi Karen - Happy New Year! I've been slow to get to all my favortie blogs! I like your mom's haircut in the last post - you did a good job! How great that the 2 of you can have a laugh together when she said she was going to bite you! Very sweet stuff to hopefully lighten your load. Take care!

  3. Hi Karen
    Wow, you still have snow and 9 degree weather! That makes me glad I live in south Texas. It's really cold here, 38 degrees right now, but it's going to get colder tonight. I'm not a winter person, so I look forward to spring.

    You're so sweet to offer your books. I hope someone will take you up on the offer.
    I'm still afraid to read very much about the later stages of Alzheimer's..... it scares me too much!

    Stay Warm!

  5. Thanks guys. It is a whooping 3 degrees here and snowing . Just flurries . Looks very pretty but just to cold for me.
    Carol from Newkidontheblog requested my books first so they are almost on the way. :) Thanks!

  6. I could use some new flannel pj's . Great christmas gift.Mom did not try to bite me this morning but we still had another laugh. Don't know why she just started laughing. I must of did something funny. Who knows? Keep smileing.

  7. Horray for me! I won Karen's regifting! Let me know how much it costs to mail it media rate! Thanks so much and thank your nephew for the regifting! Great idea to do this. And I can use the reading since my husband has dementia.
