Looking back since I started on this forum, in 7 months Mom has gone from living along to a move to memory care next month (she will be 96 in 10 days). It seems that it has all happened so fast. Medical personnel say that is just the way it happens (memory meds had many negative side effects). I am usually upbeat but getting more sad thinking about further decline. And I know - 96 is amazing. Maybe I just needed to write this down in black and white so I see it. This Forum has been so helpful!
