Tony Grist
We forgot to give my mother her newspaper this morning and she didn't notice.

I can't say I'm surprised.

So very sad. :o(

No, it's not as if she actually reads it.

Sometimes reality simply hits you in the face.

Oh, dear, indeed.

If she's largely happy, that's the best that can be hoped for. At the end of Roy's father's life his short term memory was totally shot -- as in, couldn't remember the beginning of a sentence by the time he got to the end. But he was one of the happiest guys I've ever seen.

She's very contented. She has no worries. She lives in the moment.

There are a lot worse things that could happen. Roy's mother had Alzheimer's and the last thing to leave her was the awareness that something was wrong. She lay in her bed weeping softly for months.

Oh dear ...I can't quite believe it. I can't believe she is not aware of something like that. Is this a form of denial or that I kind of know that this not noticing comes and goes?

There are times she seems more alert -and aware of what's going on- but there's no point in pretending that the general trend is for her to become more and more detached.

Courage and strength to you. I wish there was more to be done than offer those paltry words.

She won't read it- but I think it may serve as a comfort blanket.
