On my neighbor, Gerri, again- she's in the first stages of Alzheimer's and wanted the ribbon and her favorite flower. I *heart* Gerri.
Lovely! That would totally suck to have Alzheimer's!
It does. You are losing bit by bit your identity till you are a toddler and some even beyond that back to baby. I work with people with dementia and sometimes it's really heartbreaking to see them scared because they KNOW what is happening.
