Mom turned 80 years old this year, March 5, 2018.
She came to live with me in California October 2015.
I am her caregiver, 24/7, and it's a full-time job, but I can't imagine not taking care of her.
Latest on LaVerne - She is doing well. She's in a clinical trial study for a new Alzheimer's drug and it seems to keep her anxiety and frustration down. So she's no longer frantic in the evenings about "going home." I'm cooking healthy and helping her eat healthy, so she's lost 18 lbs (in last 6 months) and her A1C is out of the diabetes range. She goes for walks and works out with some free weights. Sometimes we can even get her to watercolor or play with playdoh! 9/12/18
