stepmercjohn So hard to see Mom like this. #whatmattersmost is visits from her kids, family, and friends. So far, no one else besides me has gone to see her, same as the other times she's been in the hospital with one exception 2 years ago. If she's still here on Tuesday and my siblings don't go see her, I won't be able to see straight! I'm trying not to judge, but it's really hard for me to understand why none of my siblings call her, visit her, or offer to take her out to dinner, etc. it has to be Christmas or Mothers Day for them to acknowledge her. So sad ....

  •   dovershore It must be so hard, Stephanie. I feel for you and your mom. 60min
  •   stepmercjohn @dovershore It is. Thanks for your kind sentiments! 51min
  •   carolnicholas @stepmercjohn it is so hard to see our parents this way. they bring us into the world and take care of us. when we have to look after them the reality of their decline sets in. my thoughts are with you. being a caregiver for a parent is such a tough part of the journey. this sounds cliché but I'm sure she somehow senses you are there and is grateful for your care and love. all my best to you 35min
  •   516vintage Im sorry. I hope she recovers quickly. I care for my mom, too and my sister is in Florida. You and your mom are in my prayers. Stay strong. 27min

  •   harpsong93 I used to be a hired caregiver for a woman with Alzheimer's.... It's so hard to watch them go through it, but then to not have someone they know/remember come visit or call is just painful to watch! I'm so glad that your mother has you! 17min
  •   0n_the_bright_side Hope your Mom will recover soon. Both you and your mom will be in my prayer. 4min

Normal Alzheimer's Australia SA
alzsthaus Check out this @vividsydney sculpture called ‘Affinity,’ designed by Amigo & Amigo and S1T2 which aims to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease by depicting how it affects the brain.

The work was inspired by the electrochemical activity of the brain, in which 100 billion neurons fire impulses up to 200 times per second. The sculpture aims to explore the effects of Alzheimer’s on our memories.

Affinity is on display at First Fleet Park, Circular Quay, Sydney, Australia from 5:00 - 11:00pm every night until 8 June 2015.

For those unable to visit, pictures of the sculpture are available on the website: http://affinity.s1t2.com.au/

chelle_numero_dos My Grammie & me. The most loving woman I've ever known. She selflessly gave every bit of herself to others. She suffered with dementia for many years and has now left us to be with my Grandpa. Their love for each other inspired me to find someone to love and be loved by that way. Words can't express the love and respect I have for her. I am at peace knowing she is chillin in the sun with a frosty beer ~ hand in hand with her soulmate. I love you Grammie. Rest peacefully. 4h

昨日の夜実家に戻りました。

というのも、昨日の夜「今夜山を超えられるか」という危険な状態だったんです。痙攣を起こし、体温も低下、目も白目で、意識もなし。母と弟が付き添ってさすったり、声掛けてくれて、ようやく容態が落ち着いたとのことでした。

実は昨日5/24は、数年前に病気で亡くなった猫ティオの誕生日。生きていれば4歳だったかな。ティオが助けてくれたのかもしれません。

何はともあれ良かった。これから暑くなるし、まだまだ油断は出来ませんが、少し気持ちのいい朝です。

  •   justingeorgephotos While I agree with a lot of things you post and I don't trust the government. Vaccines deffenitlly work, that's why no one has polio now 8h
  •   na_imastayantar @justingeorgephotos eh to each there own but that's a different time with a different vaccination. Not all work not all are made the same. And who is to say polio wasn't made by the government to get people to trust there vaccines so they could eventually make this happen. Lol 8h
