I began this blog shortly after my mother was diagnosed with the disease mostly to clear my head. I was losing sleep, due to worry, fear, frustration. When Mom began forgetting I began to mourn losing her and actually began to distance myself from her. It was difficult for me to watch her slip away mentally over several years.
Mom passed away August 8, 2012 and now blogging is helping me come to terms with her physical death.

Mom fell tonight (Tuesday) and gashed her head, had to get stitches and staples. She is now in the hospital and is not doing well. My sister informed me that her kidneys are failing. She will be in the hospital for several days.
