I don’t know where to begin this post – the days seem so empty, futile. long and sad – and that’s for me. Can you imagine how difficult the days are for Wayne? Hopefully he is unaware of the situation.

Surprisingly, he toils on this journey while many pass before him. I don’t know if it’s because he was so incredibly fit or maybe his wonderful personality bouys him daily – or his faith.

Missed posting but I could not pick up the pen – so to speak.

I will try to read your blogs over the next week as I guess I’m back in the saddle – hanging on tight, though, in case I get bucked off:) Love to all you faithful readers.

  1. I have hoped that you would begin to write again – thanks for the update.

    From what I have read, most people with Alzheimer’s are unaware of what is happening to them. I hope and pray that is the case for Wayne.

  2. Who knows the answer? I hope I don’t linger. Life’s journey is uncertain with twists and turns. My pretty 31 year old daughter in law is in renal failure and will probably have a transplant next year and they will be moving to Florida to be near us so we can help out. I’m trying to take it one day at a time and not worry. Take care of yourself . Glad to hear from you.

  3. A tough journey – no question! You want the journey over, but not the absence of dear hubby. It’s not a nice place to be in. I wondered if my sweetie was hanging on because he didn’t want to leave me, or his boys.
    We just don’t know, nor doe we really know how strong the human spirit is.
    Sending hugs.

  4. I think, based on watching my mom and my aunt, that your Wayne is not really aware, either of the long passing of time, or even of the abilities he has lost. You are the one bearing the load.

    And your family, of course, but they’re not present day in and day out. I hope you’re finding people around you that you can lean on.

    I’ve been thinking of you, wondering how it was going for you. I’m glad you made the effort to post.

    My man died 6 weeks ago. I’m struggling with that same “empty, futile, long and sad” feeling, but determined not to let it take over. Keeping busy helps.

  5. Good to see you posting, Jean. I wondered how you and Wayne were doing. My sweet Dad passed suddenly, in his sleep, two months ago. Like Wayne, he was in good shape and mobile, ten years post diagnosis. I feel blessed that we avoided end stage, but I miss him so much. Sending prayers and good thoughts to you and Wayne.

  6. I am sorry that I missed this post after I had gone looking for you. I did post a bit of an update on my site today and the meme definitely fits you. A superhero no doubt!! Bless your heart and Wayne’s
