There are no words to express what I feel for what you all have given me these past weeks. Please know I will never forget the love you've shared during this time when I have felt lost and broken. I will miss my mother for the rest of my life, but knowing s...

Need some prayers, please
One of Mother's favorite staff members at her new home, Cranberry House, noticed that Mother seemed to not be feeling so great last night. This morning, they got her showered and dressed and she seemed okay.  A few  hours later though, she told Kathy she wa...

My Mom - Today
Every day I learn something new about loving an Alzheimer's patient. Mostly, it's that, for me, this person who looks like my mom and sometimes acts like my mom, isn't the woman I've known so well for 66 years. My mom is in there, but so is someone else. It...

Latest Mom Update
This journey with my mom is a real roller coaster ride.  Or a cha-cha-cha.  Or a combination of the two, if that could even be a possibility. Good days for her/Bad days for her. Good days for me/Bad days for me. Yesterday morning things started out hopeful,...

Sunday Update
Know what I love? That I can sit in a corner in Panera's with a cup of coffee, a 4 Cheese Souffle and have a good cry without anyone noticing. Sitting here catching up on all the email, Facebook comments and messages that each of you has taken the time to s...

Today Mom Update
Sitting here at Cannon Memorial Hospital thinking about what a great hospital this is. And watching my mom sleep. She tells me sleeping is the best thing a person can do for pneumonia. Who's gonna argue with that? They just brought her lunch and she's not i...

Continuing the journey . . .
Yesterday we started doing some packing up at my mom's old apartment. Took a few pieces of her furniture, some clothes and necessities to her new place for her. She is bouncing back and forth between being okay with things and being very angry. Anyone belie...

the other side of the good day coin . . .
And then there are days like today that wipe days like yesterday right off the calendar like they might never have happened. My heart is broken. Mother's good day was replaced with today's "No. I am not going anywhere, and no I did NOT say that I would. And...

My Mom's Journey
I wrote a piece here on June 6 about my mom. We can call this the next installment. Up until just a little over a month ago, my mom was as mentally alert as you could ever hope for any 88 year old, and sharper than many.  Then, almost overnight, that change...

There's nothing more fun than happening upon the perfect bookstore while on vacation. When we discovered Quarter Moon Books, it made an already delightful vacation just perfect. It's warm and welcoming and fun. A terrific selection of books along with gifts that any reader would be happy to find. A beautiful selection of natural fiber clothing and sterling jewelry. I can't wait to get back.

These are the most aggressive people in the world. They may as well remove the price sheet they have on the front desk because the manicurists will not let you get out of there with what you request. They push and push and push until you finally give in just to make them shut up.
