My mom was incredible. First Female Accounting graduate from SMU in Dallas TX in 1955. Mother of 4, Married 63 years. Business Owner, CPA. Trusted Advisor to many.
I first noticed something was amiss with Mom when she started to misunderstand common directions like "Mom, the glass is on the table". My mother was so proud of her intelligence. Out of all the things one could be afraid of, Alzheimers or Dementia was that for mom. She watched my Grandmother and two of her sisters succumb to Dementia. When she was diagnosed, she was going to fight it. She started taking piano lessons and did vocabulary exercises. I had to learn to mourn the passing of my fantastic, capable mother and embrace the mother I still had. Gratefully, she passed away two years after her diagnosis.
