ALZ Progressing

My mom as beautiful as ever. We went to Gillis Park on Sunday just for a little outing and she seemed to enjoy it. Alas, after we got home she thought we were some place else and she said her husband was coming to take her home and she sat and waited by the kitchen window for this to happen. For those of you who don't know, her husband, our father, died 9 years ago. Heart breaking isn't it? Needless to say it took some cajoling and just out right lying on our part for us to bring her back to a place where she allowed me to escort her to her room to lay down and rest. ALZ is a ruthless enemy and sadly, at least for now, an enemy that cannot be defeated.  The little brace on her arm is to help with a form of tendinitis that has been bothering her. A home health therapist comes in twice a week to help diminish the pain from the inflamed tendons at the base of her thumb and arm.
