I had a few nice visits with my mother, which included a visit from my father's cousin. She loves to hear him talk--I think I saw as much of a smile as she can make. So happy that I know there is something in there being invoked.
Two weeks ago my brother called me that my mother had been taken to the hospital with a suspected stroke. They did a CT scan and stopped with that test. It's not necessary to run her through a battery of tests...this past Friday, she was "accepted" into Hospice. I thank God that there are angels who work for Hospice and will make sure our mother is comfortable. In the meantime, there is not change otherwise. She continues to be dependent on her caregivers--more angels from above. They keep her clean, brush her hair (she's always loved having her hair brushed--she used to pay me to do it when I was a kid), put lipstick on (I told them she never left the house without lipstick) and continue to treat her with love and dignity.
Alzheimer's knows no boundaries. It is the 6th leading cause of death. 1 in 3 Americans over the age of 70 will be affected by Alzheimer's. #EndAlz
For 2019 we have a beautiful quilt we are raffling. All members of the team can sell tickets to the quilt, so if you see other people selling the tickets, they are part of #LoveRemembers If you're interested in a ticket or two, just message me.
For the sake of future generations, we MUST find a cure. We can start by funding a cure! #iammymothersvoice #longdistancecaregiver #EndAlz
