Never stop believing.....

I arrived at my mother and father's place a few weeks back to find my mother in an awful state. Over night her health deterriorated to a degree that actually scared me. We dialled 9*1*1 and within minutes had the help we needed at the house. When we arrived at the hospital an amazing emergency geriatric nurse arrived in the room who turned out to be an angel in disguise. She made recommendations to the emergency doctor and within no time at all tests were ordered and a shock of a diagnoses came about. We who know nothing about alzhemeirs thought it was just part of the condition, however there was a blockage to the small intestine. They within no time had machines hooked up and a medical plan in place for observation for the next 48 hours to be crucial as to whether or not surgery was to be scheduled. Well it didn't happen, the blockage disappered and with time my mother was able to move and again preform daily tasks that we thought would never be able to happen again because of the advantacement of the alzhemiers or a possible stroke. Never stop believing that your loved one is stronger than you think they are. My mother said she was going to beat this, she has. She is a trooper. She is home again after a stay in the hospital, there are supports for a bit put in place, and she is smiling and laughing which wasn't happening in the emergency room. Thank you to those who cared for her, thank you for those who told us a few things to expect. One thing leanred for sure was that when a person who has alzhemiers is ill, they may become more confused or even go into a delirum. This is normal, and if we had of known that in the beginning it might of made things easier. Keep that in mind, and never stop beleiving in the person you love and the many ways they can be effected, that if they seem more confused that usual it just might be somthing due to illness or medicine. Be there for them, be their advocate for them and love them with all your heart.

A story goes like this: once an apartment building caught fire. Among the Lanvin Bag was a boy of five, who crawled out of the building by himself with a wet towel covering his nose. But his father, who taught him the right way, got killed, for he went back for his money. Lanvin Handbag was seen dead with a pile of notes in his hand. This tragedy imparts to us a profound philosophy: money can be more deadly than fire.Link : www.lanvinhandbagstore.com
