Tips For Caregiver's

People with Alzheimer's disease frequently become more disoriented after dark or when waking. Leaving a night-light on in the bedroom may be helpful.

No Changes...

We are back from St. Elizabeth Medical Center. There have been no changes in Walter's condition. I'm being optimistic. No change at least confirms that he has not gotten any worse.

The doctors are continuing the dialysis treatment as well as the use of the ventilator. Apparently an infectious disease specialists have been called in to rule out any other "weird" things going on in his body.

This visit seemed to be harder on Muddear today than the last. I heard her say to Walter, "I asked God to take care of you. If He didn't, then I'm not going to make it." I continue to encourage her to believe God for Walter's healing.

Muddear was not up to staying as long this time, even though we were there for hours. (We had to wait almost an hour before we could see Walter. The nurse was just about to start his bed bath when we arrived.)

I continue to believe that God can work miracles...

I just want to tell you that you and your family are in my prayers and thoughts everyday. Thank you for sharing your days, it's hard I know and you are going through so much, but God won't give you what you can't handle. I am reading your messages everyday and praying everyday for Walter. God Bless

Thank you Celia! You are right, God will never give us more than what we can bear. I believe in finding and learning the "lesson" in every experience. I will soon share my lesson.

Jane,

As always, hugs back to you. As I read your comment tonight, I was reminded of the scripture..."give and it shall be given to you. Pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give unto your busom." That is my prayer for you.
