AT FIRST: THANK YOU
In the last blog I wrote I promised to return to my good habits and diligent posts. That was a promise which I swiftly broke. As often happens to caregivers, the universe had a profound alternate plan.
Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your loyalty. Thank you for your empathy, sympathy and outpouring of well-wishes. I cannot find the words to express how deeply touched I have been by so many of my readers during this most difficult time in my life.
During these past few months since my mother's passing I have spent time thinking about the future of this blog. I wanted to return but I was unsure how to proceed. I am no longer a "stay at home caregiver" but I still have much to share.
My friends and readers have urged me to dive back into my writing. I am going to give it a try. They are, of course, right. As I get back into writing again I plan to share my experiences at the end of our long battle with Alzheimer's. It would not be right to leave out the last chapters of Adelaide's Journey. I also want to share my current odyssey through grief and my struggle to rebuild my life which had been in limbo for so many years. I hope you will come along with me.
