Pizza and Ice Cream


Some days Chrissy will keep our dog, Sam, for company. One recent rainy day I had a phone message from Chrissy that Sam didn't like the rain storm - that was it, just one sentence, no hello or goodbye. Within an hour another one sentence message - Sam was shaking. A little later there was another message that said, "Judy I'm spending the night with you." I called my sweet man and he went to stay with Chrissy until I arrived home from work. The above photo was taken that evening. We ordered pizza and had ice cream and strawberries for dessert. I am so blessed that Chrissy most often is easy, flexible and precious - and to have a sweet man who loves my mother. I hear struggles from other caregivers that their loved one requires constant care and that the disease is more progressed, making care so difficult. My heart aches for those who have little support and greater family stress.

She is precious and yes, he is sweet! Think they get that way from ice cream and strawberries? I see he even shared his chair in the picture!
