My dad calls her Mini, I call her MAMA. She is having a rough time right now. Her allergies are terrible, her stomache bothers her and her shoulder hurts. She has a tough time trying to explain what hurts her.... yet she giggles. I love her giggle. She has the most beautiful eyes and when she is "off" they give her away. I love my mom and even though she is not the same as she used to be, I am enjoying her RIGHT NOW. If I sit and think about it too much I guess you could say that I get pretty angry. I keep reminding myself that she is able to enjoy herself right now and I should too.
HBO has a new 4 part series about Alzeimer's disease. While there is no cure for the disease, THE ALZHEIMER'S PROJECT shows there is now genuine reason to be optimistic about the future. Created by the award-winning team behind HBO's acclaimed "Addiction" project, this multi-platform series takes a close look at groundbreaking discoveries made by the country's leading scientists, as well as the effects of this debilitating and fatal disease both on those with Alzheimer's and on their families.
I watched this last night and instead of depressing me it actually made me happy. There are still good times to enjoy. I love this lady with my whole heart.
