    It’s hard. Just savor every moment that you can. One of my grandpas died when I was only 4 so I don’t have any memory, and my grandma died when I was in high school. I have another set of grandparents that I visit every Sunday and it’s been so great to be around with them. Last Thanksgiving we thought that my grandpa wasn’t going to make it, and one of my best memories is of reading “17 John” to him.

    I haven’t dealt with alzheimer’s but I’m sure that it’s harder to be around because he doesn’t know you sometimes, but just enjoy the times that you do have together.

    God has you both wrapped in his arms.

    i’m sorry you’re going through this…

    but remember your blog title…you fall and then you rise…

    you’ll be okay. you’ll get through this…appreciate the time you have now and enjoy every moment and realize this is what life is all about. *hugs*

    Blerg, that’s tough. 😦 My grandma has been declining in health, too, and recently was given a laptop to use in her nursing home, which sounds like a cool thing right? But it’s not, because every email she sends makes less sense than the last, and it’s sad. Sending peaceful, comforting thoughts and prayers your way.
