My Loving Mom

My mom is in the memory ward at an assisted living facility. She is in the early moderate stage. Mom has a problem with recalling things, like when Dad died, at times forgetting why she is in the memory ward, forgetting that I called her, and not remembering what she ate.

I can still hold a conversation with her, but dread the day when she will get worse. I have not seen her over a year because of the stupid virus. I worry that when I get to see her she will be worse. I don't think I will be able to handle seeing her with the effects of late stage.
