Oh this is so true. So hard to see it and to maybe foresee it. Working out, staying healthy and challenging oneself in some way to learn something new…..but still. As my friend who just passed away this January told me, getting old is not for sissies. There are complications that come to some of us. But, we may not be totally loss, we could maybe compensate? It is recognizing it that matters……and dealing. Some do not admit their changes which I can understand. Your poem catches so much of this at its essence.
Ah. Yeah. Tech Boy’s father didn’t recognize us last time we saw him. It is so very difficult.
Oh, God. Although it was awful when my mom died, I was so glad that none of us went through the heartache of her having dementia or advanced Alzheimer’s. We’ll see what happens with my dad… I’m so sorry for you and Tech Boy and his family.
