My Birthday Was A Good Day!

Each day is a gift, and I say, "thank you God." .....
Alzheimer's Reading Room

I read this over on -- Moving Forward With Alzheimer's.

Yesterday was my 69th birthday....Yea! David has been so happy and talkative all week, this was the best birthday present I could receive!

We went to a seafood restaurant for lunch (his choice), and it was a good choice. He had salmon, which doesn't require a knife, and that's always good.

Tonight our best friends will take us to Olive Garden. David will order eggplant parmigiana, and he won't need a knife....yea. Alzheimer's changes many things, but I'm so grateful that he still enjoys getting out.

Today we went for a ride in the country; It was so neat to hear David oooohing and aaaaahing as he marveled at the beauty that God has bestowed on us. The wildflowers in our area are prettier than I remember in my lifetime......now that's a long time!

Each day is a gift, and I say, "thank you God."

P.S......... As the clock ticks, so does Alzheimer's.....always changing. We aren't going to Olive Garden tonight. David has suddenly changed into a brooding/bad mood, he said he didn't want to go anywhere. The clock continues to tick, and tomorrow will be a new day.

Editor Note: As you can see Dolores has a wonderful attitude. I am sure many of you have a similar experience. You just never know what is coming next on the Alzheimer's rollercoaster.
