My mom passed quietly yesterday. She was 76. It was an odd situation, with her care facility in lock down. No one had seen her in weeks, except by phone. It was just the end stage of the disease, nothing unexpected at this point. But she got good care and was able to be transferred out in time that a few of us could be with her. All 6 feet apart, with masks, etc. Just wanted to remark that the care, medical, and hospice did an outstanding job under tough circumstances. I worry that they are about to face very tough times in the coming weeks.
I sometimes mentioned my mom on the boards, as a reason I got involved in AD and apoe4 issues. So I felt an update was in order.
I'm thinking of all the people who helped her and our family over the years this played out and all of you that have similar struggles.
Concerned, but hopeful. Introverted, but will talk about science.
