~Happy Valentine's Day....Tickled Pink ~


Happy Happy Valentine's Day! This is the happiest news I can think of to report: Neuroscientists at Case Western Reserve University here in Cleveland, have found a breakthrough in their research in an attempt to find a cure for alzheimer's disease. You can read the article HERE.

For those of you who read my blog, you know that my dear mother, now almost 92 years-of-age, has suffered from this dreadful disease for years now. She presently resides in a special assisted living facility in a dementia unit. The facility, the director, and the 'angels' who care for her daily are true blessings in our family's lives. Without them, her care would be impossible. She is no longer able to walk or care for any of her needs. She has even forgotten how to chew food. I know many of you are dealing with similar situations with your loved ones. My Valentine Prayer is that the discovery of these dedicated scientists ends in their finding that this will be an answer to this horrific disease.
