What a mind boggleing thing to do!!!

This blog isn't asking for Pitty...just Thoughts and Prayers Please!!!!
I mentioned in another blog that the Hospice said Mom wouldn't make it 60 days.....Well ..thats about 30 days ago...
Her Alzheimers gets a little worse each day.....along with having Mini strokes..
The Alzheimers wont kill her...but the Strokes will!!!
She can still talk....and walk....Thank God!!! But I must admit....Shes Not the Mom I can remember even 2 months ago......her Mind is way out there.....
Its so sad!!! The other day...she forgot how to walk....but with a lil help...she remembered.....!! Its just a matter of time before she will not be able too (walk).....
Some days she tries to talk...and cant...!
She knows something is wrong with her thinking.....and it pisses her off to the Point of tears!!!
Everyday I Pray for God to have mercy....!!! Maybe thats selfish on my Part....but I can't stand the sight of my Mom suffering!!! Its more of a Mental suffering than Physical....
Thoughts and Prayers are Very Welcome...PLEASE!!!!

I hope she's with God soon and no longer has to suffer. I have spent umpteen hours volunteering with alzheimers patients. Watching their attitude change from day to day was amazing. I know it can't be easy. Keep visiting and help her enjoy what time she has left!

Lot's of love & prayers!

I and many others know what you are going through generally. Yet it is an individual experience for all of us. Often their is false guilt for our feelings. There may come a point to where her lucidity is gone and she has no idea of who you or anybody else is. You will need to take care of yourself and other family members as there will be nothing further that you can do for her. It is hear retching.

I know it is hard. I am there with my Mom too, although other than her mind being gone she is doing pretty well at the moment. You just have to take one day at a time and get through that day and then do the same thing the next day. I will keep her in my prayers. I know this is frustrating but there is really not much one can do other than trying to make sure they are as comfortable as possible Have they tried giving her Aricept in the past? I don't know if they will with the strokes though.

You know hun I just went through this. Wanting peace for her is NOT being selfish. You can't get past the feelings of helplessness..you just have to walk them through. You do everything in your power to keep her comfortable and hun...that is the best you can do.

Know that she knows you're there for her and trust me, when you think she won't know you're there...she does.

Just love her, tend to her needs and be gentle with yourself. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

The Hospice I volunteer at has counciling available for the caregivers and family. Sounds like you need some help so check it out. Grief counciling is very important at a time like this. Most of the nurses can help you come to terms with what your going through. Its not easy but it helps if you reach out and accept help. Hang in there Mr. Toad...

I know how you feel, Bro. Watching my mother go through 2 years of spinal cancer and the last 6 months were near unendurable. Take a day at a time and try to take time for yourself if you can. The constant drain on you is not good either.

Dear Toad I wish we could do more for you than offer our thoughts and prayers for you and your mom. I join with the others in doing so.

If I were there I'd visit with you and your mom; give you time away for an afternoon nap; and hold your hand just so you know you aren't alone. Please be good to yourself... this is NOT selfish, it's essential to be able to work through one of the most difficult times of life. A greenie for your devotion to your mom even though it isn't anything really... just the thought.

I can relate to everything you wrote! Just lost my Dad 18 months ago. One of the most difficult things I have ever had to do is to watch my parent become the child and me having to become the parent! Of course, my prayers go out to you and to your Mom. Getting old and the change that comes with it is a difficult thing - to watch and/or to do - but it is a natural process and one of the best things we, as children, can do is to allow and even to help our parents go through this with as much dignity as possible. God Bless!
