Mom, originally uploaded by lal3509.

This is my 83 year old mother. The picture was take a few days ago, it was her third day at the new nursing home . She is on a floor just for Alzheimer patients. She looks great because the first thing she asked me for is lipstick. That much of her is still present. Her pride/vanity in the way she looks. I will know when she is no longer inside her mind when she fails to take notice of how she looks.
For the past 6 months or so she has been so anxious, and finally the doctor gave her some medicine that really mellowed her out. No more fear and nerves. She just smiles and seems so calm.
