Hubby and I were finally able to visit with my family over the weekend, delayed twice since December 23rd, once by a virus that we both caught and then the MLK weekend bad weather. The visit was bittersweet, as they have been the last couple years, but never moreso than now. My mother's mental condition continues to deteriorate and my sister has acknowledged that she is on the verge of no longer being physically able to manage our mother's care at home. Your prayers would be very welcome.
I think I'm going to go have myself a good cry for a while.
BTW, if any of you happen to have sleep apnea or know someone who does, seeking a specialist is imperative. It's taken a huge toll on my family and my sister strongly believes it plays an important role in the development of Alzheimer's.
