No Words Today







  1. Hi Marylin: Dementia is so tough. My paternal grandmother had advanced Alzheimer’s disease. When I brought my son to see her, she didn’t know who I was and barely recognized my dad, her own son. During the final weeks of my mom’s illness, she would “slip” into another world in a way, where she didn’t know what was going on. Tears fill my eyes as I remember one of these days and the words she said to me. I know she didn’t mean them, but the memory is still in my heart. My mom slipped away from us during the last few weeks of her life. It happened so quickly, like a switch had been flipped. There was so much I wanted to say, but hadn’t. Then, the opportunity was lost, leaving me with many regrets that plagued me after my mom was gone. But throughout my mom’s illness, like your mom, the goodness of her heart and her kindness continued. I wish you all the best. Hugs.

  2. Lovely, honest blog. I’m losing my mom a day at a time, to advance dementia, but her good heart and kindness continues to shine through.
