BUT I STILL KNOW WHO SHE IS
THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS ALL ABOUT!
(This applies to parents and siblings also, even good friends)

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when a gentleman in his 80's,
arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb.

He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.
I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be
over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him
looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another
patient, I would evaluate his wound.
On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got
the needed supplies to remove his sutures and re-dress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's
appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry.
The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his
wife. I inquired as to her health.
He told me that she had been there for a
while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's Disease.
As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.
He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.
I was surprised, and asked him,
"And you still go every morning,
even though she doesn't know who you are?"
He smiled as he patted my hand and said,
"She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is."

I had to hold back tears as he left,
I had goose bumps on my arm, and
thought,
"That is the kind of love I want in my life."

True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an
acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one
that comes along that has an important message. I had to share it with
you all.

Oh, by the way, peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the best of everything they have. (Amen to that!)

I hope you share this with someone you care about. I JUST DID

This made me think about my Grandma...who died of Alzheimer's.
Her kids and husband took such good care of her, but she didn't know them.
Such a sad disease.......my aunt (Reanna) would stay with her for 2 days, then as soon as she left and my mom would be there to take over, Grandma would say "I wish Reanna would come visit me...she hasn't been here for years and I miss her so much."

But, we still knew who she was! thumbup

No matter how much they forget, we remember and that matters just as much. My Grandmother died not remembering who we all were on her bad days. It is such a difficult thing to go through.
