Family matters

My Grandmother is not well. She's been going downhill for some time now, but I think the family has been in denial. It was pretty obvious to me the first time I heard about her leaving the stove on. But then again, I'm far enough removed for my sight to be somewhat clearer.

She's now in an assisted living place where they pretend to keep an eye on her. From what I hear, they're not doing a good job. But it's hard to tell from 5 states away. All I know is that she's still mad that they put her there and I certainly wouldn't want to be the one she's taking it out on. I wish those scientists would come up with a way to cure dementia soon...

I read a thing on the news yesterday about how they made serious progress (on mice) toward a vaccine for alzheimers. It's not so much a cure, but it is a sort of hope, I guess...

That is good news. All that brain stuff is pretty scary. I hate to say it, but it would almost be easier if she had some sort of disease. Losing my mind is one of the scariest things I can think of.
