Goodbye to a very tough year

by woodtick

2013 was a very tough year for me. It was wonderful that in January that my second grand baby was born and I got to go out and visit.(she was healthy even tho Dr.s were afraid) What a wonderful and loving experience. I came home from that visit and within 2 weeks my mom died from the agonizing result of Alzheimer's Disease. I had cared for my mom at my home for 8 years but in the end she was in a home, I spent her last day in that home with her. She died not even 3 minutes after I left. Not even 2 months....hubby got real sick from osteomilytis and was hospitalized and had emergency surgery.
I spent the next 3 months tendinding his pic line and doing everything I could to keep him alive.
2 surgeries later all seemed well

This post game show is dedicated to my hubby who just died unexpectedly on Wednesday. He always loved the fact that I had found a second home on D Kos. He loved the banter in MF and the true family of all of us here. He never signed on but heard me read so many of your comments. Your names were always names he remembered, your silly comments made him laugh. So this post game will not be sequestered, this game will not be shut down. I have come here to honor the man that I loved and that love will be forever.
There have been many of you that have asked what they can do,They want to help,I say a/d has a great fundraising going on that my hubby thought was  so special and the years she has spent never faltering, she is my hero and my hubby was equally impressed ...he would have wanted  to help
So my dear MF'ers if you wanted to know what you could do for me donate in my husbands name  Steven C. LeVan  Here' the link
a really good cause
May he rest in peace

Today I bring mom home

by woodtick

I have watched my mom suffer through Alzheimer's Disease in every stage. It was a very difficult journey, but i promised I'd be there for her. The last 9 months she had to be in a home as she couldn't walk at all. Every week I managed to see her at least once or twice. I would bring her pictures and music and it seemed to make her happy.
On Tuesday Feb. 5 she did not speak to me until I showed her a picture of her mother, she then clearly  spoke " hi mommy" I left in tears.

How can I say Thank You

by woodtick

Those that have been following me know that I took care of my mom, who has Alzheimer's disease. It was a long 5 years before she was placed in a home, for I could not possibly care for her at home any more.
Many at DKos helped me on a daily basis by sending much love and mojo. Then I was shocked one day to find out that someone gave me a lifetime subscription to Kos. Who would do this for me? Why would someone care enough about me to help?
