Alzheimer Study

Today we visited Jackie at Dr. Patel's office to participate in a Alzheimer study which hopefully will be of some help to families someday going through the same thing. On the way mom said, "I don't want to go to the Dr. and if she asks I will say I feel rotten.....just joking!" Jackie asked us many questions to which I answered most. When Mom did answer she usually did so humorously such as to the question, "Have you fallen in the last 3 months" to which mom replied, "No..............................................because I don't drink." My part included a questionnaire which took me approximately 15 minutes to complete asking all types of questions regarding Mom's care and it's impact on me. Funny, another time I might have answered less positively, but for today I feel good.
