Thank You!

First of all, thank you to the many that were thoughtful enough to write me about my mother’s situation. Many of you have requested an update on how she has been doing after her surgery. Some of you have also requested information about her condition and if she is as alert as she was.
So mom was alert for about a week but each day she seems to convert back to old herself prior to surgery. For about three days she was more talkative then she had been in a year. I have spoken to many people, who are in the field of studying Alzheimer’s, about her change in condition. It seems that it may have something to do with the pain receptors.

When pain is inflicted (in mom’s case her IV) the nerves become more alive. The adrenaline possibly helps fuel messages to break over plaque infested entanglements. So she has help reaching her memory.

This is fascinating to me. Hopefully, one day, this kind of information will help cure this awful disease.

Thanks so much for your support and kind words.
