I haven't been by the Disign boards lately and I just saw your post. Big hugs to you and your family! You have helped my family so much in the past through your wonderful designs. I wish you all the best. My mother went through some of the same things with my grandmother. It's not easy. I hope 2013 brings you peace and happiness!

I have been off the Boards for a while and just saw this. You and your family are in my prayers, Linda. My Grandmother also had alzheimers and I know how painful it is to watch someone that you love just disintegrate like that.
Have a magical day!

Hi all, again thank you for your kind words. My dad was transferred to a nursing home this weekend. I had to get guardianship over him and due to the holidays things went a bit slower than we hoped. I feel bad because I knew my dad made some friends where he was and now he has to start all over.

My mom is doing great. She's going through physical therapy and is doing quite well. My mental state has healed a bit and though I do not plan to return to DISigning for a few months more I am really looking forward to it. Just still need some time to myself for now. Thanks again.

Just wanted to send you hug and let you know you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Alz is so hard on everyone involved especially for the loved ones closest to the patient. I am so sorry. I am glad to hear your mother is doing well though.

On my mind -

Hi, I am brand new to these boards and stumbled on them while looking for a t-shirt design. Despite more trips to Disney than I can count, I've never done the shirt thing for us but decided to attempt it for coming trip. I got to the boards by finding a design of yours that is the outline of Mickey's head made by names. I was so excited by it, I ended up here. I know you're in the middle of family problems and have seen the many posts wishing you well. I just had to say that I know. The paranoia and delusions of a parent can make you feel like you have entered another universe - that was unimaginable before. You can have heard about it but until you live it, you don't quite get it. We made our regular Jan trip to WDW last year and all was well. This year, we have booked only a room so we can cancel later and we waited to book until last minute. My mother now lives in that nightmare of fear and I am not at all sure we will be able to leave town. We're fortunate to have other family nearby to fill in but not sure it won't be too much for them, or for her, for us to travel.

Since I read your story yesterday, you've been on my mind. You did so many nice things for people on this board. I just wanted to tell you that someone else is wishing you well. Bless you and your family.

Wow, I had not been on this part of the forum since I was planning our trip last summer. We are leaving in 3 weeks and I did a search for your name because I love your blanks designs. The title of this thread made me click on it. I am so sorry for all you have been through all these months. Wishing you peace as things continue to move forward.

Hi everyone. I just wanted to stop by and thank you all for your continued support. Since my last post my dad's health is failing a little every day and believe it or not my mom fell...again...and broke her hip for the second time in less than 5 months. This time she shattered her femur also. Life has been hectic to say the least. I miss not being here for you but I will be restructuring my Photobucket soon and then see where I can go from there. Thanks again.
