Each day is anew, as the Alzheimer's continues it's erasure of short term memory, yet we've found that what comforts her most is companionship, engaging conversation, she loves me to take her on drives through the countryside.

A new worry for me is that I've been offered a very good position at Boeing, having been out of work for so long I can hardly refuse to accept, yet I know that Mom will become saddened and depressed without company, so some alternative will have to be arranged.

I was listening this week to NPR about how many families are facing similar situations with aging parents, some having opted to leave their jobs to provide optimal care to those they love, even to selling one's home.

Most kind of you to ask Brit.

Thank you so much and to all for the kind thoughts and regards.
