Decisions have been made and fears cast aside. Moving day is looming on the horizon and we wonder – will it bring sunshine or storms?
Mom is excited. My brother and I are relieved but we have no idea how Dad is feeling or, if he is even aware. Our biggest worry now is over his capacity to cope with life in an assisted living community. We have more questions than answers but are satisfied that we have made the best decision for our situation. In just a few days, we will sleep knowing that someone is watching over our folks in the dark hours of night. We take great comfort in that.
The next few days will leave little time for writing but I will return with what I hope will be nothing but hopeful, happy, funny stories. As we step onto this new road, I wish each of you who is living under the cloud of Alzheimer’s the same peace that we have found since making a decision.
