And now may the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you.

And may God grant unto you His peace-in your going out and in your coming in,

In your lying down and in your rising up,

In your labor and in your leisure,

In your laughter and in your tears,

Until you come to stand before Jesus

In that day in which there is no sunset and no dawning.

24 hours and we leave for Orlando

Our big vacation starts Thursday when we leave for Orlando, FL for a full family vacation. DH, our daughter, our son-in-law and grandson (O and me too) are going to earn our Mickey Mouse ears. I haven't had a set since the original Mickey Mouse Club was on TV in the 1950's. Oh, dear, did I give my generational age away?

DH is still having a great deal of clarity. It's like 2008 never happened. Well almost. There are still a few occasions of short term memory lapse, but some of them are literally just a oops I forget that and not a I don't remember that at all.

He still believes that he is not a dementia patient, but will not stop taking the Namenda to test his belief. Thank God for that!

Cannot wait to get where it is warm. It snowed here yesterday! The ground was warm enough that it melted, but still snow in April.

Please keep praying for all dementia patients and thank you for your prayers.

Dear Karen,

It's your buddy from Q Lounge. I looked up your quilting blog and then found this page.

I was very sorry to read about your husband.

My husband has been ill with "something" for a year. He has ups and downs, and goes between clarity and confusion. Just this week he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We are both devastated by the news.

We haven't told anyone yet and he is going to a big Alz facility for a second opinion in a few weeks, but we both know the diagnosis is right.

I just wanted you to know that there is another voice in the wilderness who shares your pain and understands what it's like. Maybe we can support each other through our travails.

Have a wonderful trip.
