I would first like to apologize for not writing sooner. My home computer broke and the one computer I can borrow has a broken "u" key. If I am patient and daring enough, I will use that computer (I have to hit "CTRL V" to get the letter "u". It's time consuming as you can imagine)
I would just like to, once again, thank everyone for all your comments, prayers and words of strength and love. My children and I care for my husband out of love and we do it because it just comes naturally to us. We never thought we were doing anything amazing or out of the ordinary. When I married my husband, I heard the vows, "for better or for worse, in sickness and in health". I KNOW Mike would have been there for me. We married out of love, and it's the strength of that love that enables me to do what I do.
Scentedcottage, Wendy, Liz, Stephanie, Susan, Suset, Wendy, Annie, Laura and Karen C - Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to write me words of encouragement. JoAnn - I DID work in Friendly's NHP for 9 years, so I'm, sure we must know each other. In fact Friendly's had a reunion this summer. It's a small world. There were NUMEROUS anonymous messages, so I can't thank you all personally, but please know that I TRULY appreciate what you have written.
I pray for a cure for this disease and all I ask is that you remember us and do your best to help keep the subject open. There are NO SURVIVORS of Alzheimer's Disease, no one to march on Washington. Alzheimer patients do not have the voices to speak out. Please help us speak up for them.
It's great to hear from you all today, but please don't forget about us (Alzheimer patients and families) tomorrow.
Thank you and God Bless.
