Sorry to report that Mrs. T (Barb) was transported from St. Mary's Hospital campus in Rochester MN. to Cottage Wood memory care unit this week. This has been five years coming but the wandering, memory loss and agitation had increased considerably this summer and fall with numerous 911 calls and stays in the secure unit or “prison" as she has called it. Barb volunteered at Mayos Abigail Van Bureans Alzheimer and Memory Loss Research Center . Perhaps the last great frontier isn’t outer space but the human brain and it’s role in mental illness. Your thoughts and prayers now and in the future will be much appreciated. I intend to return to my blogging hobby and soon as I can get my act together here on the home front.
