I am not a doctor. I am providing information based on experiences that my mom has with natural remedies. The purpose of this blog is to help folks to educate themselves. Use this information with your own discernment.

Hey God... We're ready for a miracle over here!

"Susie, I feel like I woke up.  It's so strange.  I can think.  I can say my words.  If only I could stop the stuttering, I'd be normal."  My mom said as we drove up the highway yesterday morning on our way to my sister's house. 

My mom appears to be better, even today.  She's clear.  She's speaking but with a little stuttering; she's getting her thoughts out, she's finding her words. 

Could it be?  Could she be getting better, improving or is this just a fluke?

She's different than she was just a week ago.  A week ago she was like Uncle Al, delusional and lost in her mind.  She was scared and looking for a way to get home, a home that I had no idea how to find for her.  As a Care Giver, it's frustrating when we are not able to bring our wards what they want, all we want to do as care givers is to bring them happiness and peace.

One day at a time.

I don't want to get my hopes up, that my mom is cured and she'll be the mom that we always knew, except healthier.  I do have butterflies of excitment when I think about this as an outcome.  I do have hope and I also believe in miracles. 

One day at a time, is my new approach.  I'll enjoy every one of these phenomenal days with my mom.  Each day is another opportunity for me to show my mom how much I love her while she acknowledges where the love is coming from... Oh joy!  She knows who I am!  She remembers.  She's finding words so that she can communicate. 

Could it be?  Could we be on to a work around for Alzheimer's?  Can hypnosis reprogram the brain of Alzheimer's patients?  I don't have the answer to these questions, not yet.  I believe in miracles... I'm ready for a miracle.  Hey God... We're ready for a miracle over here!
