A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Sometimes Not

Who is he … looking at me
Hugged me … wearing a grin
Should I smile … look away
Seems he thinks … I know him
You do Mom … your son-in-law
You’ve know … many years
Sometimes … you remember
Sometimes not … my tears!

I think Mother’s eyesight is amiss. I’ve read articles that say the Alzheimer’s person has narrowing vision. I’ve also noticed she grimaces when many voices are around (public places). She’s good at covering up, seeming to understand something when she doesn’t. I just take things as they come. This Momma needs much attention on outings!

    poor son-in-law…it is so disappointing and hurtful when you are no longer recognised, but thats the way the cookie crumbles…this is how it goes..but deep in there , way back in her mind , she still knows. It is only that it does not spring into the brain when it should do.
    I would not be at all surprised if hearing was affected, after all, its in the same compartment. also slurred speech and problem with eye focus.
    We can see now what could possibly happen to ourselves as years pass by. Its not a selective ailment, anyone will do. I reckon that I am well on the way..my memory is terrible
    love to you all

  2. Surely your husband understands? It is by far more hurtful to have a mother say, “Daughter? This is not my daughter. I had no children.”
