Happy Mother's Day

Reid and I are in Little Rock celebrating Mother's Day this weekend. I'm with my mom right now at the nursing home. She is eating her tub of ice cream! What a happy Mama she is!

My dad received a call early yesterday morning from the nursing home saying that Mom had suffered a seizure in the hallway and fell as a result. The cause seems to be the deterioration of the brain made by the Disease. It didn't seem at the time that she sustained any injuries, but she made some indication that her hip is bothering her. She may just be sore, but an x-ray has been ordered to explore any unseen damage.

I hate that we may have progressed to a new place with the Disease. I hate it for her, and I hate it for us.

Today, however, she has been silly. We have been talking about things we did when we were kids and she has been laughing. I love her laugh.

Look at all that ice cream! I am surprised she can down it all! LOL. You're a great daughter Mare. I love you and am so proud of you!

Your mom is lucky to have you for a daughter, and I'm sure you are fortunate to have her for a mom. It is so hard to watch our moms go through these difficult days. My mom was also ill (not Alz) for a long time. She died several years ago, but I still miss her. I miss Dallas, too! My daughter did her residency at Parkland, so we were there often.
