My thoughts are with her. I saw both my Grandmother and Grandfather have to be placed in a home due to Alyzheimers and its difficult.

My parents resisted at first, but when you both work and Gramps goes on a dillusional walk that ends up with him passed out in a snowbank.......you realize that no matter what you said before, the assisted living facility is the safeist place. Take care HTG.

Thank you Gonz. It was a very difficult decision to make but at least I know she is safe, warm and not in danger of falling again.

On Thursday, I stopped by my Mom's house to pick up some things for her to take to the residence so that she would be a little more "familiar" and while I was there, I decided to go down to the laundry room to see if she had any clothes that needed laundered. At the bottom of the steps was one of her favorite designer tops and it was all crumbled up. I went down the stairs, picked it up and was absolutely horrified. There were a few blood spots on the front but the back of the top was saturated with blood so I knew that was the top she had on when she fell. As her injuries were to her nose and eyes, I knew she must have either knocked herself out with the fall or somehow ended up on her back and laid in the pool of blood for a while. After seeing that top, I am at total peace with the decision and know I made the best decision I could for Mom.

This Christmas is going to be a little rough, but the entire family is going to get together and spend some time with Mom both on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

Again - thank you all so much for praying for my Mom and I ask that you continue with those prayers.

Mom's mental agility is deteriorating rapidly and her docs are shocked. While she was still in the hospital, the psychiatritry staff gave her a "mini-mental" test to determine her agility and she got a 23/30. Before she was discharged, they gave her another one and her score was 20/30. Last Friday when I took her to the psychiatrist for a follow-up, her score was 16/30. He feels this may be due to microscopic brain infarcts that won't show up on any tests. She is also very depressed and because of the depression, doesn't leave her room much except to eat which isn't very often either. I keep telling her that she has to eat to get stronger but she doesn't seem to care, though she claims she wants to go on living. I took her for an exam yesterday morning to her PCP and when he asked her to tell him about her "living situation", she told him "it's fine - I live at home in my house". Mom honestly believes she is still at home. It's a very sad situation all the way around.

When your loved ones get up in years, spend as much time with them as you can and make sure they know how much you love them. Mom and I are very close and I don't hesitate to tell her and show her how much I love her and that I will stand by her no matter what. I've been terribly stressed out by this situation, but the way I look at it is that my parents scooped me out of an orphanage at the tender age of 7 months, called me their own, took care of me throughout my life and gave me a wonderful, happy childhood, and now it is MY turn to take care of my Mom, as my Dad would want.

Quite honestly, I don't believe she will be with us next Christmas, so the family and I are going to make this Christmas very special for her!

God Bless all of you and again, many thanks for your love and prayers.

Prayers still coming from Hollidaysburg. Hopefully that odds are defied and you will be spending next Christmas with your mother.
