Received a phone call today from mom.
Dad is losing his memory. And it’s over things we take for granted.
Like who is the current President of the United States.
The name of his new grandson.
I cannot imagine right now what it is like to start losing time.
Mom said that he is going to be tested for Alzhiemer’s and other diseases which can compromise our memories.
Why would I post something so personal here? Well, millions of Americans are facing what I am going through and that’s dealing with an elderly parent. Unfortunately we are part of this not so elite club. Watching those we love begin to slip away.
Medicines might help slow down the progression but in the end I wonder what will be left? My prayers go out to dad…Saint Jude to please protect him.
