Stop the presses!


Ink used to run in J’s veins.  Her parents owned two local newspapers, and she was a journalist when we met.  I have never known her not to read a daily paper.  So it was with much sadness that I recently canceled her subscription.  Her Alzheimer’s is advanced enough that just she can’t read it.  Worse yet, she doesn’t miss it.

On a more positive note, I have been able to arrange with a local nonprofit organization for a dog to visit J once a week.  I was lucky enough to be with her when the worker came in with the dog, Sparky.  J was so, so happy.  I wish I hadn’t been the only one to see her sheer joy.
