little miracles

I knew when I arrived at my mom and dads that my mom(she has alzheimers) had some good news for me,,,, We first sat down for a bit of coffee and she just could not contain herselve, she finally said with a huge grin "I think I will weigh myselve",, off to the room and she stepped on the scale and low and behold she is 110lbs.... yahoooooooo, she was so close to shrinking away last christmas, she was down below 90lbs and now a year later she has gained 20lbs.... I am so happy... and because she was happy it was just so much better.

Re: little miracles

Yes.... a little miracle. Good for her and good for you. I am excited for you both and hope it continues. Isn't it nice to see our loved ones "fat" and happy! We will take all the little miracles we can get

Love, deb

Re: little miracles

Some good news for you!!!!!! Thats wonderful. My poor Mom is on the other end of the weight problem. She is on 3 meds that are causing her to gain alot of weight. She cannot do without them. Two years ago we were so worried about her weight loss. Now its the opposite. Its hard on her knees.
Glad you have this to smile about jags.
Love Chris

Re: little miracles

That realliy is good news. Many AD victims lose and lose - like my Mom did. So this is more than a little miracle -- maybe it is a middle sized miracle!

Love,

Martha
