Her blog is called My Alzheimer's Story -
and it's an amazing journal of a Daughter's journey with her Mom through the process -
it's a blog not to be missed - seriously.
There are video's and soundtracks of conversations they have - some will leave you smiling - some will leave you crying - all will leave you absolutely mesmerized by the power of love.
Susan ( the daughter ) is eloquent and articulate as she shares her stories and you can't help but fall in love with both Mother and Daughter.
Their story is filled with grace and dignity - respect and above all, love.
Here's an excerpt from one of her posts.
Today is moving day.
My Mom Pinkie Patti leaves her home of 40 years to go into another kind of “home.”
The kind you go to when you don’t know where you’re going or what you’re doing anymore. And she doesn’t.
She won’t know when she opens her eyes this morning that it will be the last time she’ll cast them on the sunlight streaming through her bedroom window.
(Dawn is just about to break, the sky is streaked with pink and blue, and a light frost coats the trees and fallen leaves all around the house.)
She didn’t know yesterday it would be the last time she would enjoy breakfast in her kitchen, clean her counter tops, or stare into the crackling flames in her fireplace. Soon these small joys will belong to someone else, someone who may never know how much each of them once meant to Patti.She doesn’t know she won’t dance in the goldenrod in her field again, or swim naked with me in the lake or walk in the winter wonderland behind her house at Christmas.
Somehow the fact that she doesn’t know seems to make her imminent (within hours now) departure more tragic.
But none of us know when we’re going to leave the life we’re living. We may be snatched away at any moment, with no inkling the breath before was to be our last. It can happen at nine months, nine seasons or 99 years.
It's such an important story that affects so many and most of us know very little about it.
Take a visit
I promise, you'll be glad you did.

and this is what love looks like.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend
