Mama was diagnosed with Myelodysplasia/Leukemia this year which is now more of a concern than her Dementia/Alzheimer's (and we thought we were challenged before)! In 2012 we've been to the ER 3 times, the hospital 7 times for transfusions & had the "final talk" at least twice. Mama seemed to be on deaths door a few times & we were prepared for the worse, but then she bounced back & we're grateful for that! We tell her that she's like the "Energizer Bunny". When she doesn't get that analogy we say "ya know like Liza Minnelli, she keeps on going & going" - she understands this concept.
Below is her video "Mama's Big Break - Some of These Daze."
