As most know my mother lost her Early Onset Alzheimers battle on October 16, 2009. She was only 57 and for almost 7 years she suffered so much and with her Pychology degree she new everything she had gone thru and would endure until the end. Its a horrible disease and noone should have to go thru it. It will already be 4 years in a few weeks since she's been gone and the heartache just won't go away. She was already an angel when she was alive, she would of done anything for anybody. I have never met such a soft spoken, mild tempered beautiful person like my mother. She will never be forgotten! Love and miss you mom, always and forever! ♡♥♡♥♡♥

On October 16,2009, my mother; Deborah Denton (57), passed away after a long battled with Early Onset Alzheimers'. Since 2003, My mother had spent the rest her days in a Nursing Home. The last week of her life was unbearable for us. As emotional as it was to lose her, it was a relief of not seeing her suffer anymore. She will be dearly missed! We love you MOM!!! Rest in Peace!!!

As you can see my Mom is still hanging on. We were told she had Early Onset Alzheimers' in 2003. For 6 long painful and emotional years. We don't know exactly how much time she has left, but she is fighting as hard as she can. Unfortunately, the Atrophy has set in. Her arms are criss-crossed, they are stiff as a board. Rehab has been trying to help, but no success. They are scared they will break her arms/hands if they force them open. Yesterday, I had my beautician come in and cut her hair. (This is her new haircut). My Dad told me he wanted her long hair gone, but I didn't want it to be too short. Her hair is so beautiful, I cried when she cut it off. Atleast with it not being in a pony tail she won't get a headache from it being to tight. I just want my mom to be as comfortable as possible.

Bless my mom's soul. She's hanging on with all her might, I don't know how she does it! Alzheimer's is a terrible disease and it's a slow and lingering process. My mom is trying to fight it, I don't know why, but she is. She can't walk, talk, or feed herself. Her Atrophy is getting worse. Now, she is getting rashes on her body, weightloss, and she tends to be in alot of pain from the Atrophy. They took her off all her meds, besides Morphine. Every year for the past 6 years almost, they say it will be the last year. My mother just turned 57 on March 13. she has missed out in so many things. Since she is bed bound I can't take her out anywhere, that is the hardest thing for me. Dealing with her illness was easier to cope when I could take her outside and see her smile, all I see now is a lost look on her face and innocense.

I am posting this fund for the Alzheimer's Association in the name of my mom. No donations made will go to my family, it will direct you to the Alzheimer's Association and the donations go to them for their search for the cure. The only thing of my my mom associated with it, will be the donation in honor of her.

Yesterday, Mom went to a Neurologist. My mother has been opening her mouth in a position as if she wants to talk but nothing comes out. Her tongue is also rolled completely to her right side of her mouth. The Neurologist thinks she has had a Massive Stroke on top of the Early Onset Alzheimer's. The 12th of November she goes for a Cat Scan and the 13th for an EEG. At her Care Plan Meeting yesterday, I asked for Early Onset was is the Span compared to regular Alzfeimer's. They said Max 10 years. My mom got in a car accident Feb. 2003 that is how we found out she had it. We don't know how long before then that it had developed. So I am assuming from now till 2013, I will lose my mom all together. I have swallowed my pride and accepted the disease she has and I know death is coming sooner than later. I can deal with the Alzheimer's part with her forgetfulness but when pain becomes a factor it's harder to cope with. I know my mother can still hear me and wants to talk , she trys but nothing comes out. I love you MOM forever and Always!
