"I'll love you forever."


We had a great visit with Peggy Lu.  It makes it easier to go over to the house with someone, because when we sit and chat together, Peggy gets into the conversation, she mumbles, and stutters, and shouts, and smiles, and drinks her tea and participates, in her own way.  Instead of me just staring at her asking questions, wanting answers.  So, I guess my advice for today is to include your alzhiemer's patient in as much as you can.  Don't expect a lot, but you might get a surprise like a bite, or maybe even a coherent whisper like  "I'll love you forever."  That's what Peggy said, when Peggy Lu said goodbye to her last night.
