Mike's friend Tom came over tonight to visit with him. He's Mike's ONLY friend that has kept visiting Mike all these years. He's our angel. My mom isn't feeling well even though she's been on Cipro for multiple infections as per her dermatologist. I fear she may need IV antibiotics. She's been sick for so long. Courtney came home today to help me with Mike because Brandon was out with his friends and my brother is sick with his CVS (cyclical vomiting syndrome. NOT fun). I had to have help getting Mike into bed. The problem arose when Brandon called to say that he decided to stay at his friend's house for the night. I called out a favor to my good friend Mary. Her and her son came to sit with Mike so I could get Courtney back to school. On one hand I'm upset with Brandon for making these last minute plans, on the other hand I am happy he's getting out.
Calls continue to come in from old friends as well as people we've never met. I'm THRILLED that our story made the impact it did. The Alzheimer organizations here on LI have been getting more calls from people for help and resources. I am happy that we have been able to help people, who otherwise may have never reached out. For those of my "blog family" here on LI, look for the 2nd part of the series this Sunday. For those not in the area, you can still check it out at www.Newsday.com.
