...fifty-nine years ago today, Mike proposed ... and now I'm his caregiver,
taking one day at a time. Losing the essence of the man he used to be is
very sad, but I'm thrilled to still have him!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

59 years ...You are now hired in a relation of help accompanying him in a different life. You remember the quality of your relations and it will always remains. Don't forget yourself in having from time to time breaths of outside life if you can and agree to be helped .It is a way of difficult life but both together as long that you can . You can be proud .
