you are in my thoughts

dearest Kadesma

You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I do know what you are going though since about 6 mos ago my Mom died (at age 96) after a lengthy (15 year) bout with dementia. During this time I was the only living child and therefore had to shoulder responsibilities and make many decisions on her behalf.

On a practical level, I can only say that dementia is an irreversible deterioriation of the brain. Meds cannot reverse it; supplementary oxygen supply to the brain can help (just a simple breathing tube connected to an oxygen tank).

On an emotional level - I know how devastating this can be. I don't want to go into it here, but if you ever want to PM me, please do so. I will always be willing to help and share.

yours - SF

Dearest Kadesma...you are doing something that I'm afraid I could never do. I am so uncomfortable around "sick" people. I just never feel like I know the right thing to say or do. I bless your strength...and love for your family. Just remember to plan time for yourself too...(you will need it to keep your best foot forward the rest of the time) and also to keep the "smile" that the rest of the family will need. Your strength will be their comfort...so take care of yourself first. We all love you...hugs and prayers.

cj, nothing can be harder than to make those type of life decisions. Keep looking on the positive side. Don't forget to make some time for yourself. You are one terrific lady for caring for your family like you do. I will be thinking of you and your family.

Lots of hugs and love from your friend,

JLT
