Thanks everybody for your thoughtful coments and prayers. My mother is so sweet and I just love her to pieces. I feel like she's my "Mimi Me" cause she is lots like me. She is just so adorable I could squeese and hug her. I feel blessed to have her and going to enjoy every moment I can with her.

I've just seen this now - sorry to hear your mum has been through a difficult time recently, but I'm pleased to hear she's doing better now (y) Has she been able to leave hospital yet?

Going to see my mommy today. I had to work all day yesterday so I never got to see her so I miss her extra today!

The little guppy pond is so extra beautiful today so I took this video just a few minutes ago,
This was a very hot summer with little rain this month. I watered everything so its green, and its going to be Plus 40 Celsius this Friday!!!

My mom says she is in the hospital cause she had a baby, named "Colleen" and I have to share her with my sister "Glenda". She says she is my half sister and she has blonde long hair like me. She says if she cries to bring her back.... What do you say? I just play along cause no need to upset my sweet mommy. I think her memories are all mixed up.

My honey's mom had Alzheimer's she always looked at him and said you are the fat one and would giggle. BTW by that time honey was lot skinnier. She was always happy, pleasant. I met her after the onset, she always asked who are you?
She managed to live it for over 15 years. We had nurses taking care of her and his dad in their own home.

She was always happy, pleasant.
It's fortunate when Alzheimer's patients maintain their good disposition. We've had several relatives become very violent, angry and aggressive - totally unlike their normal personality. The families could not keep them in their homes for fear someone would be hurt. It's a sad way to end life.

I have had very little time for myself these days as my mom needs me. She still remembers me but does not sing gospel anymore with me, just a few words at the end of the song if I am lucky. Mother had such a beautiful voice and used to sing in the choir. If i could just hear her sing again...
I made her little room all nice and cosy. New bedspreads and new pictures. Wall Flowers are stuck everywhere. Now she likes her room with little balconey. She is now in wheelchair and cannot walk or stand. Her slipper fell off the foot I see... My sweet Mommy, love her to pieces...
