When I visit Wayne, I take treats such as grapes, his fav apples or bran muffins.

Yesterday one of the residents saw the food, got up and brought a bib for Wayne.

The resident no longer talks so I was careful he meant for us to have it.

It’s amazing one can figure out what a resident is trying to say most times.

Dirty rotten Alzheimer’s, you stole the mind of a PhD in physics. I hate you more than you will ever know -and all my friends and family hate you, too!

    Jean–all those of us who have had AD afflict and then take someone dear hate this disease.
    When my mother-in-law died, I asked to speak at her funeral, and I began by saying “We are here to say goodbye to Mary, but the truth is–even though she died only recently–she left us some time ago.”
    Nancy Reagan talked about the Long Goodbye, after Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with AD.
    And so it is–it is a long, very painful for us, sad goodbye.
    You are often in my thoughts and prayers.

    So frustrating and sad. I’m glad he took you on a flight today.

    I hope one day they find a cure for this horrible disease. I am glad that you found a place to care for Wayne and that the other resident still wanted to be kind in spite of this dreaded disease.
