Just wanted to stop in before I head to bed and ask that you ladies pray for my sweet Mom...... The nurse that stops in three times a week took me aside Thursday and suggested that I have Mom tested for Alzheimer's.
It did not come as a shock to me as my brother and I have noticed that she is becoming increasingly worse in her memory and all around understanding. The nurse seems to think that she is past the mild stage and moving into the moderate. It breaks my heart as Mom is in pretty good shape physically. I so hoped that she would have many more years out here with us.
I have been spending more time with her and she is getting in the pool with me 45 minutes or so each day. She is loving it. I have to keep a very very close eye on her at all times but she sits on the step and just kicks her feet.
I guess I will make an appointment with her Dr next week and have her take a simple test. I hear that they have some pretty good medicine that will slow the progression down a bit? I know nothing of this demon disease so I guess that I need to study some.
I do not know what I would do without my older brother Paul and his wife Alpha. It is times as these that I so need someone else to bear this weight. They are wonderful to help and be right there for me and Dennis.
Pray for my little Mom, she will be 89 in December. I so want her to enjoy more years out here with us....... I know that God can do this.......... I will pray and I appreciate you calling out her name to the Father when she crosses your mind. Her name is Helen............. I will have a picture of her in the pool for you tomorrow............ Good night and may the Father God watch over each of you this holiday weekend.
