This weekend, I visited my grandmother. Unfortunately, she is not doing very well. Alzheimer’s disease has really gotten to her fast. She is asleep most of the time, and when she is awake she is not very present. We are happy when she says a few words, even though they make no sense.
She was still doing a lot better in December, when I took my annual portrait of her. Whenever we would visit, she would always brighten up, as you can clearly see in the photo. It is strange to realize that mentally she is no longer with us, while she is physically still doing well. I just hope she still enjoys our visits.
