I did speak to her the other day, after I last blogged, and it's Alzheimer's they are testing for. So I am not sure if she will be given results or more tests at the appointment. Either way, it's inevitable. If she doesn't have it now, she WILL get it. It's hereditary and her mother had it, as do some of her older sisters. Better than the death sentence that is cancer, right?
Not really. What is worse, your mind going or your body? Honestly, I can't decide. I hate the thought of my mother (or anyone for that matter) forgetting her family and friends. Her grandchildren, her husband, her daughters. What cruel jokes the universe will play on us. And why? Why does anyone deserve that sort of pain? Alzheimer's hurts the whole family. Breaks hearts. And I don't think I can handle it.
