My Alzheimer Mom is here for the week and I have been very very busy dealing with her.  It is time to move her into an assisted living apartment.  We put down a deposit yesterday amid her shaking her head and repeating NO!

But it is the best thing.  She will go back to Laplace this weekend to tell everyone the news.  Stan's kids no longer want to care for her but she doesn't really understand all that.  And she is a handful.

She and I ate lunch there yesterday and tomorrow we will go to a Cochon de Lait there .  They will be roasting 4 pigs and doing Cajun dancing with a Cajun band.  And a French teacher will be there to help everyone speak French!

My mom is SLOW.  The word was invented for her and she intensified it.  Snails outrun her getting dressed.  See Dutch waiting?

Sigh.  My Alzheimer Aunt was just practice for my mom I guess.

And I am not a patient person.  By any stretch of the imagination.   But it is amazing what one can do..........

  1. My heart goes out to both of you. I don't know which is worse, the person who has it or those who have to care for that person.



I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
