It Has Been A Week!

A lot going on, but for some reason I finally figured out what the email was to this blog and was able to move back. I have been in limbo for over three years. It feels good to be home.(-: I was o.k. with the other blog but all my previous posts were here. I basically gave up ever getting back here, but miracles do happen for some things and this was one of them.

Yesterday after taking my Mom to the doctor for the millionth time, I was finally told what is going on with her. Another shocker. She has Alzheimer's. This has been going on for five years, so the doctor said. She was diagnosed in 2012 but had been showing signs and symptoms for several years before she was actually diagnosed. She never told us. Why? I have no clue, although I think it could be because she didn't want us to know. Obviously someday we would find out, but maybe she didn't want us to know until it was close to the end. I probably will never understand her reasoning. To me it makes no sense. The doctor thought we knew.

At least we know now. The doctor said she is in her end stage and fading rapidly. At least we know what is wrong with her. That in itself is a relief. We thought it was do to her alcoholism. Even though she swore she didn't drink anymore we thought somehow she was still getting supplied with alcohol.

As you know if you are a follower of my blog, my Dad passed away almost three years ago. It has been a difficult time for all of us.

So onward and upward as they say.

It is a beautiful day here in the garden and I am going to get outside and do some cleanup.

Cindee ... I am so sorry ... I know you have a lot of issues with your mom ... I think you might remember I had too .. alcoholism and such bad parental/mental issues .. with no resolution (she died when we lived in the Netherlands) ... I get what you must be feeling.
Your emotions are all over the place .. it is a lot to handle especially now.
Your shining light is that little Princess .. hold on to that : )
