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

Glad To Be Home

We just got back home Friday evening after a long stay at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Hospital in Little Rock Arkansas.
I think I told you before moms eye was giving her trouble well it just kept getting worse so had to have a eye doc. come check her out. I have to give Dr Jefferies a shout out . He did a house call. Thanks to him. Anyway he said her eyeball had ruptured so it needed to have surgery very soon. Well the next day we were off to Little Rock. Than the surgeon would not do surgery till the infection was gone. That took a week and than surgery and two days recovery and now we are at home. All is well. If it heals good and no infection sets in she will be feeling good soon I think. You can tell she is much better. I bet that nasty eye as been hurting her for a very long time. She just could not tell us. She has not opened in along time due to another surgery she had years ago. So hard to tell when it had ruptured. I just hope it is all better now.


  1. scary stuff you just went through! thinking all the positive thoughts I can.

  2. Oh Karen...... I'm so sorry; I know this has been so hard for you and your mother. The eyes are so sensitive and the pain can be so bad.......
    You're such a good daughter to have taken care of this like you did.....
    Praying and hoping she won't be in pain anymore..... Alzheimer's is bad enough...... you don't need pain too.

  3. Glad this surgery happened and that you first had a house call. How does she communicate her needs to you? Shaking her head yes or no when you ask questions?

  4. Thanks all.
    Sometimes she talks to us and other times she just sits and stares. But lately she has been talking up a storm. I bet the infection in the eye made her not talk much now she is making up for it. And it is understandable. Alot of it anyway.

  5. aww poor mom i hope she feels better soon and glad you are back


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