Two years ago today my Mom was set free from the disease that stole her thoughts, her memories, and her happiness. It robbed us of many days, weeks, months, years of the happy, loving woman she was. I missed her then. I miss her now.
I am a wife and mother. All members of our extended family live three thousand miles away. My Father became ill and passed away suddenly in 2003. Mom began to decline. She was sad, she missed Dad. I was sad, I missed Dad...And we cried A LOT. Mom had been showing signs of depression, agitation and confusion and the stress from Dad’s passing increased this to the point that I thought I might lose Mom as well. Then came that fateful day when I was informed by her Doctor that this was NOT going to get better… Mom had Dementia...As of December 27, 2007, she has peace.
