I agree Alzheimer's is such a sad disease. When I was in high school I did a project on three people with three stages of it.

My uncle is dealing with the physical effects of Alzheimer's, as well as the memory effects, so it was wonderful to be able to spend time with him, even though it breaks my heart to see the debilitating effects of that disease. My emotions were up and down the entire day, but through it all I tried to focus on gratitude for the time i was able to spend with those I love.
Autumn & Chip - My heart goes out to you on the death of your friend! Anytime you lose someone so young it is a tragedy, but losing them to suicide adds a whole new level of sadness to the mix. I am so sorry for your loss, and hope you can feel the hug I am sending your way right now.
Sherri - Oh no, the tummy flu?? Hope you are feeling better SOON!!!
