Why This Blog Stopped

on August 21, 2016

Dad got sick shortly after the last entry. He was in the hospital for a week and the doctors released him to a skilled nursing center under the care of hospice. Every time an Alzheimer’s patient is ill, they are never able to function at the same level again. Their functioning lessens with each illness, no matter how large or small the illness. The last coherent thing he said to me was in April 2013. He asked me, “Want me to whop you upside the head?” We laughed and laughed at that. That was the last time he knew me.  He passed away on April 26, 2016. I miss him very much, but his mind is clear now and he’s with my mom. As she would always say, all’s well that ends well.
