From the Publisher

Within the throngs of Alzheimer’s disease—Ups and downs, brief
moments of clarity. One is almost hopeful that the old you has returned
for good, then, just as quickly—a reality check. It’s only a brief moment
of clarity. I miss you mama, even though you are here with me. I’ve
had moments of grief—forever grieving little losses every day. I try
desperately to hold on to as much of you as I can, trying not to be
selfish. I try desperately not to let it be patient and nurse. But letting it be
mother and daughter. ‘Wondering if this is déjà vu’. I can sometimes see
Jessica helping escort me to the chair; covering me with the lap blanket
and sweater and bringing me my afternoon meal—it’s as if all that time
has passed and I can’t remember anything in between. Then flash back
to reality when you are clinging to me for dear life, your nails in my arms
and begging Jesus to save you, as we go from the bed to the wheel chair.
Once safe in the wheel chair everything is ok and back we go to normal
We’ve all been through some sort of loss but this loss is especially
cruel, to live while dying.
