Is my mom's situation.
She starts to forget the name of her grandchildren and seems to forget who they are.
Needless to tell that I am concerned about this.
Is this the start of the begin that she can't remember us?
For those who don't know what my mom has, she has alzheimer.
More and more I see that the things of her daily live are causing her problems.
Sometimes she looks like she is asking me " I can't remember it anymore".
It's tough to deal with this situation.

I'll keep praying for you and your mom. I know it's tough to watch her slowly degrade like that.

I have a story for you. When former US President was lying near death from this same disease, the press asked his daughter some questions. One of those questions was something like:

"Your father was the American President. He can't remember any of it now, so what does it matter?"

She answered, "It matters because I'll never forget."

What does that have to do with you? Your mom might even forget your name, and not be able to tell you she loves you. But, as long as YOU remember, then you will always know it. Fill your mind with the good times to help you through the bad ones. This won't magically take away the pain, but it will help get you through it.


I might have decided, or maybe not, that I should or shouldn't, depending on the issue or non-issue, to possibly share or not share, any thoughts, opinions, or facts (that might not be deemed factual by some), due to possible fear of any misinterpretation or retribution.

I can believe that this is very difficult for you. My wife used to work in a retirement/nursing home and saw many elderly people suffering from alzheimers and dementia.
It is very difficult for the family members (and many of them would stop visiting).
But you will remember, and Christ will remember you both.

Still praying for you sister.
