Mothers and Daughters

My mother with me and my brother Kenny, circa 1954.

Me with Lisbeth, circa 1982.
I haven't posted here in awhile. My mother died on January 24th. She was 89 and had Alzheimer's, and was ready to go. Relief and grief.
But, Lisbeth is doing better! Her mood as improved, her seizure activity is low, and her appetite is coming back. She sees her expressive arts therapist twice a week now - we feel that this is helping a great deal. She is still struggling with insomnia, though. We are considering taking her off of another one of her remaining (three) anti-epileptics. Perhaps her seizure activity is dwindling as she gets older...I've heard tell that this can happen!
