My first question is Where can I buy Medifast diet pills, except for online? Hoping for any answer. My other question... Early this morning mom passed away in the nursing home. She was 81 years old with the last stage of Alzheimer's disease. A disease that makes you watch the person you knew go mentally insane. occassionally she'd seem as close to her old self as was possible.

The last stage she spoke gibberish and also on her bad days would lashout at the nursing home caretakers. Keeping her sedated helped some, but she got dehydrated as she would.

Sleep.

While being sedated. I have to say it was neccessary to have her in the nursing home for the amount of constant care she needed,but it was hard to.

Leave.

Her in a strange hospital type surroundings amoungst strangers too. She will be buried next to my dad.She outlived him by 38 years. But she really loved him too. My issues with her was put away, as I tried to appreciate what little time we had until this disease took her completely. I can accept her fate without tears. She will have to be in our minds as we remember the real person, not the woman under the influence of Alzheimer.



Hope.

They find the reason for it and also the cure. I wouldn't wish this diseaser on anyone-It robs you of alot. Mom is in a better place- finally with my father and all the rest of the relatives gone before her. There will be one big party in heaven tonight- a reunion of sorts. The rest of us will have to catch up with them later. See you later mom...

First, I am sorry to hear about your mother, but am happy for you that you are at peace with everything that had happened. Currently, I am a certified nursing assistant and work in two nursing homes, one of which has a floor with the dementia residents on it (60 patients). Although, this was not the specific floor I worked on, I made it a habit to become close with every family member I came in contact with, to let them know that their loved one was being cared for in the best way possible. I know, ideally, no one wants to put their loved one in a facility like this to begin with, but the level of care from trained professionals is very helpful and gives that person the best quality of life in the time they have left. Condolences (spelling?) to you and your family. ill kep you in my prayers...

So glad she is at peace. Hoping you will be soon. There is such a strange mixture of grief, which starts so long before the loved one, who has already left us, departs this life, and yet a sense of relief, and closure, as her suffering and your own ends...

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Being a nurse I can't think of another disease that is so hard on the person and the family. I respect that you are at peace with letting your mother go to a better place. I wish you peace and comfort in the following days. God bless you..

I am so sorry for your lost. I also lost my wonderful mom to alzheimer's. It is a strange thing, because you grieve the lost of your Mom as the disease slowly robs her from you, and then again, when the disease takes the person that your Mom has become..

I lost my Mom on Mother's Day 2 years ago, it was such a fitting day for her to enter our Lord's loving home, but I still miss her so much..

For those of you that still have your Moms (and Dads) with you, I know there is no such thing as a perfect parent, but please appreciate them while they are with you, faults and all..

MsDebutante, you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers...

Reading.

This brought back all the feelings I went through with my dad last year. It's so hard to see a lively intelligent person fade away to nothing. When he told my sister he could "hear the geese honking in the wild blue", we knew it was time for him to go. He passed a day later. My mom passed this year, she almost made a year after my dad, but I've read that people in long marriages often choose to go and join their spouse sooner because they miss them so bad. My folks were married 54 years, so it wasn't unexpected..

It hurts like hell, my thoughts and prayers are with you..

Hugs! Patricia..

I lost my mom 20+ years ago. It is a big loss and my heart is with you. I know as hard as it was to let go, I found comfort not having to see her suffer any more. My kids never knew her. That's why I'm having this.

Surgery.

I don't want to go in 20 years - I want to live a long life like your mom did! I'm going to make a donation to the Altheimers Association now. Bless you and take care!..

I just read Lu's post. Please cherish your parents and don't waste time on being angry. I always say, "my mom has been gone 20+ years and she gets smarter and smarter all the time!. I had no idea what I would miss...

My mom died from Alhzeimers, but she was only seventy. I.

Hope.

That for you, as it was for my family, a cause to celebrate her life and memories as we knew her before. I don't know that at the final judgement (if you believe in it) that our bodies will be reunited with our souls, but I am absolutely convinced that my Mom at long last got her mind back. As I was packing to go home for her funeral she spoke to me more clearly than I had heard in years (I turned around to look) I was packing my black and she said "Oh, Linda, can't you wear something pretty." I put the black away, pulled out a bright blue dress and moved on. The time for morning was over - mom had been reunited with us..

Be at peace, the mixed emotions are normal..

Lin..
