Good Morning to all of you!! I want to apologize for not visiting alot of you this week, my family and I have a had a rough week. My Mom has entered a different stage of her illness and it's been pretty tough and emotional. I have such a heavy heart. I think my "Mom" is gone. This horrible disease has robbed us, and I don't think I will ever have another real conversation with my Mama again. And somehow we have become the protector, the shield, the comforter, so to speak the parent and I don't want to be her parent, I still want to be her little girl that can go to her for all those things, oh how I want her back the way she was so long ago. I'm so sorry for unloading on all of you.

Even with all the sorrow GOD is still so good to us and I pray that I never lose that focus. Please say a prayer for my Daddy, her is such a GOOD man , he is my Hero and as much as I hurt because I am losing my Mama, he is losing the love of his life one day at a time and, oh gosh how that must hurt, and him being the type of man he is, he is still trying to protect his 45, 41 and 35 year old daughters. He still tries to keep things from us about the things that go on day to day, minute to minute.

If the opportunity ever arises for you to support the Alzheimers Association , please do, because maybe a cure could be found. I don't want anyone else I know and love to ever have to go through this. Again I am sorry for unloading, thank you for listening. God bless all of you. Give somebody you love a HUG.

Kristy, I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this horrible disease with your momma! It is so very sad how it robs not just the person who has it but the loved ones around them too. I'll be praying for everyone to have strength and understanding as the process continues. You are right in saying that your "mom" is no longer there. Remember that going forward if the conversations/visit turn hateful or worse yet, fearful. :0(
Big Hugs and Prayers to you and your family.

Kristy,

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Wes' Dad had Alzheimer's and there were times that the disease was comical and heartbreaking at the same time. It was so hard to watch him slip from us so slowly long before he left this world to be with God. Very few people know that Wes found out that his father had passed away while we were in China adopting Lily. God had given us our beautiful daughter just a few days before Wes' Dad let go and went home. It was such an emotional trip. You are in my thoughts and prayers on this most difficult of journeys.
