I spent the morning with my mum, as Dad is away, and for the first time in ages, my children weren't with me. It was a real breakthrough, although I wasn't looking forward to going on my own!!!! For the first time, she finally acknowledged the fact that I knew she had AD, as she had been trying to hide it, and we had some quite positive conversations. She has been quite ill on Aricept, and so is going to try something else, but she wouldn't even have admitted that a couple of weeks ago. She is also beginning to realise her limitations, and it was one of those' windows' when she seems quite lucid, so we were able to sort a few things out. We even shared a tear or two! It was quit a nice morning in a strange way, but I now sit here in tears, as she seems to get further and further away from me, and I miss her.
