I found a video that I had shot from Christmas 10 years ago. Mom and I watched it today. It's sad how much AD has robbed from both of us. It was neat to see my nephew at 10 though. He was a typical ten year old. On the video my mom asks me if I heard him rummaging around at 3:30 AM on Christmas morning. And we now had evidence that my sister did not make him like the Packers (he received a Packer's mini helmet as a gift).

Another lucid moment today. My sister called while I was at the veterinarian with Lily for her yearly checkup. When I arrived home Mom told me that she called (amazing!) and my sister told me that Mom told her I had taken the cat to the vet. This disease just blows my mind. Lily has lost a little over a pound in weight. I've been concerned about that so they are doing some blood tests. Other than the weight loss, she seems to be fine, playing and eating OK. Hopefully it's not diabetes.

That's really nice that you have a video from 10 years ago. What a great way to spend the afternoon. How wonderful that your Mom remembered your sister calling AND that she was able to tell her you were at the vet. I live for those lucid moments. :D

It was always so awesome when Mom had those moments! I can understand your excitement.

Good luck with Lily. I have a cat who is diabetic and the little 3 units of insulin he gets twice a day has done the trick. He looks wonderful once again! Let us know how it goes.

i love watching old videos! funny, how much we've grown and matured... all though sometimes it feels like the other way around too. the older i get, the dumber i act. i loved reading through your posts. i hope lily is ok. my in-laws had a diabetic kitty, they had to do the insulin too... but then i also knew a kitty that was on prozac, lol. the family had picked it up from the shelter to find out the kitty was manic... isn't that funny? so it went on some kitty prozac, rofl!

I'm glad that you watched this!

Over this past year, I searched out videos (we especially enjoyed the one of my son's birth and first Christmas and birthday) and I found photo albums, and about a million slides and a projector. Mom knew MOST of the people in the slides (from 30+ years ago). I didn't even know some of them! But, we had a good time looking at these!
