I have been off Patriot Express the past 2 years as my mother has Alzheimer’s and is staying with me. It was my decision to spend the time with her while she still had the wherewithal to understand and enjoy the moments shared with family and friends.
We have been working to understand the issues associated with the disease which has been passed down to the women on her side for the last 3 generations. She always was concerned that the girls would end up with the Alzheimer defect and wished they would come up with a cure so no one else would have to struggle as she and many others do.
Ma is doing well considering what we will experience in the near future as the disease continues to erode the quality of life she once knew. Her humor is still intact even though she can not remember what she said or what happened seconds ago.
Each day we try to log something on video to document the good with the not so good. For an 80 something year old she doesn’t complain about much.
Now I am going to attempt to bring back the Patriot Express Radio network which was put together to bring truth to the issues we deem important. I look forward to the next adventure with great anticipation.
