Remembering

Today mom and I were remembering or at least seeing how much she remembers of last year.  It was brutal.  She was hallucinating day and night, seeing 2-3 of every person, sundowning “jitters,” Lewy lean to the left, this weird incoherent whispering, not sleeping, night terrors.  Ugh.  She doesn’t remember much of it and that is a grace.  Again, I’m so glad the Lord led us down a different road.  There is hope, people.  There really is.  We have been so blessed.  She still sees things every now and then and we give her “the drops” and they go...

It was a short weekend and now I’m home.  I’ve only been home a couple of hours and it’s been surprising how much work it is to be a caregiver.  It’s up...
