My wife, who has Dementia and I,
have been married many years.
We have two children who are
Now in their 50's.
Having a conversation with her,
And she turns to me and asks
A question, I hadn't heard before.
"Do you have any children?"
My wife was admitted to a Memory
Care Facility on January 3rd 2022.
These last several months have been
Difficult. More for me because she doesn't
Remember. This time will pass. I feel
Blessed that she can still talk to me.
Dementia and Alzheimers is an insidious
Disease.
I write to help myself to cope with the
Emotional baggage which is included for all
Caregivers out there. You are not alone.
Bless you all.

I know it is a tough and painful time, and I so admire the way you care for her. I’m glad you have writing as an outlet…
