Thinking of Mom

It's hard to believe that my mom is now in a nursing home. Little did I know when she moved in with me in March that her Alzheimer's would progress so quickly. This last month was a turning point, when we knew she needed 24-7 care that we could not provide at home. She is in the same place where my father spent his last year. A warm place with a great staff of nurses and aides who greeted us like old friends. Still, not an easy decision.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and well wishes.


  1. No that's not an easy decision but the right one. I hope for her and you that she is happy in the home

  2. Linda -Ingrid said it all. A big hug for you. Love Marge

  3. I just discovered your blog because I was writing about 1919 Movy-Dols and looking for more information. Your post from last October was very helpful. What a wonderful blog!

    But I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's illness. I can imagine what a tough time this has been for you, your mom, and your family. It sounds like she's getting the best possible care though.

    You and your mom will be in my thoughts...

  4. Oh, Linda, best of luck with your mother. I'm so sorry to hear about her rapid decline. I do know what you mean, though, because my father has similar issues. (1 1/2 years ago he was driving--now he's in a facility). Take care, and here's wishing you a lot of strength. Kwei-lin
