At this point, I believe she is simply existing in her body.
If anyone knows how tragic Alzheimer’s can be, it is my mother.
At age 92, she takes few medications and is ambulatory.
In fact, with the aid of a walker, Mummy strides up and down the halls in her care center — sometimes for hours.
Long story short, he has been on the decline for a very long time.
My mother has almost forced this onto my dad who loves her too much to ever speak his mind around her since she is so emotionally fragile she will break down. He chokes on his food and has started to get reoccuring chest infections due to him aspirating it. I thought of this as a blessing because I see it as his way to leave this world in peace and finally be out of his misery.
When she is walking the halls, Mummy often appears to have a purpose and a destination in mind. Up close, it is immediately apparent Mummy is locked into a prison from which there is no parole.
While Mummy may not have major physical ailments, there is no doubt that she is suffering terrible mental anguish.
When I do pray, it is always about my mother who is living with Alzheimer’s disease.He shall send the goat away into the wilderness in the care of someone appointed for the task. I don’t even believe in a higher power, let alone one true God.I’ve questioned her before as to why they don’t consider a home (before he was placed in the rehab last week) and she breaks down and says I don’t get to ask questions since I moved out of their house 6 years ago. He always told me he never wanted to suffer when it was his time. They even asked me to pray for him to “bounce back” which, put lightly, caused me to snap.My mom cries constantly and lashes out at my grandfather, and the stress was so intense I think it contributed to her breast cancer diagnosis last year. I was relieved to see him comfortable in his hospital bed in a deep sleep surrounded by family because it was the way he had wanted to go, right? For at least 3 years he has been wasting away on their couch.No one is to be in the tent of meeting from the time Aaron goes in to make atonement in the Most Holy Place until he comes out, having made atonement for himself, his household and the whole community of Israel.
