You may remember me posting how much mom had declined in a few short months. 

Well, now, she seems better.  Cognitively, no.  She still doesn't see my dad or me as family.  Doesn't remember being married for 57 years. 

But her affect is so much better.  She is eating better.  She is more alert.  Not spacey and out of it as she was for months. She interacts more and seems happier.

What the heck.  How can this be a rollercoaster like this?  How long will this last?

I agree, Bela.  I just don't get it.  Very bizzarre disease.

Hi Daughter,

My mother has had rollercoaster periods like this as well. Trying to understand this disease is a bit like trying to herd cats...

Hugs,

MG
