My mother succumbed to Alzheimer's at 89... now my siblings and I work toward understanding and prevention.

Discharge from the Hospital
Knowing Mom was in good hands, I didn't go to the hospital until noon, when a doctor called to report on her condition. She had decided to discharge her back to her residence, so by 3:30 pm I was pushing her wheelchair back to Ocean View with Mom's private caregiver for the 2-10 p shift, Racquel. By 6 pm I was back home, but I'd lost two days of Christmas preparation time.
