Alzheimer's Disease

Cammie is holding a blog candy contest over on her blog here. My paternal grandmother has been in a nursing home for about 10 years now, suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, just like her own mother before her. I just read an email last week from my stepmother saying that things are not looking good for my gramma. My stepmother has been the one to see gramma all the time, checking on her, and keeping in touch with the nursing staff at the nursing home. In keeping with Cammie's rules, I am sending THIS card to my stepmother. My hope is that maybe she can show this to my gramma and they can share a smile.

Why don't you send a card to someone you care about today? Send one to your grandparents, to your mother, maybe an aunt or uncle whom you only send Christmas cards to every year? Put a smile on someone's face this week.
