It's Been A While

I know. It's been quite a while since my last update on Mom so I won't keep you waiting. 

Mom is doing good. At least as good as can be expected. There have been a few rough days and she is really slowing down--slowing down enough that some days it's all I can do to get one real meal into her. But after a few slow days she will surprise me by being up for several hours and eating three meals in one day.

Her dementia is progressing robbing more of her memory on a monthly basis. She hasn't had any idea who I am for a couple of months now and just about every day she asks if I know anything about her boys. One day last week after I explained I was her son Dan, she gave me a scolding for not introducing myself to her.  

Well anyway, Mom is slowing down but still hanging in there.

The picture? That's where I want to be. I'm tired of the snow, the cold and the rain. I want to sit on the beach, smoke cigars and drink beer!
