This post comes to us from Ellen Wysocki.
My beautiful mother was diagnosed with AD nearly 10 years ago and is in what they tell me are the latter stages of this horrid disease. When I look at her sweet face I can not help but feel we have been robbed-us as well as my mother. My wonderful daughter agreed to help with home care so we could remove our mom from the nursing home facility she was at. It was so difficult to visit her there and leaving was the worst part. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful daughter being that I work full-time, otherwise I would not be in a position to do this for her. And now she has returned the favor to me by gifting me with a sweet grand daughter who I constantly tease will be my caregiver one day. Life is coming full circle. I make a point of sitting baby on mom's bed every day just to see a glimmer of some kind of joy on her face. I am blessed.
