Research team identifies human ‘memory gene'
 
Read all about it at:
 
 
"The impact of the study is that it gives the research community a new and important handhold into truly understanding the process of memory. The ramifications of this report are ultimately developing new and effective medicines that can combat memory loss, and that might also help improve memory in people with memory disorders like Alzheimer's disease."
 
God bless and stay well,

Hi Lynn,

I don't know why the link doesn't work as it is. I fiddled with it, dong all I know to do to get it to work. I can get it to work if I copy the link and paste it into a new browser.

I hope you get to read it. Otherwise let me know, I will copy it and send it to your email address rather than through the forum.

God bless and stay well,

Maddi

Hi Lynn,

I hope this discovery brings help to those in dispair.

My husbands father has recently been diagnosed with Altzheimer's Disease. It seems he sleeps 18 and even more hours a day!

He doesn't remember even simple things...i.e...on their anniversary a few weeks ago, Jim's parents went out with friens they had know for years for an anniversay celebration. At the end of the "date", the other couple wished Jim's parents a happy anniversary. "Oh!" said Charles (Jim's dad), "Are we having an anniversary? When is it?"

It was sad..

God bless and stay well,

Maddi

Hi Lyn,

Thanks for your kind words.

Yes, it is devastating to watch your loved one slip away, further and further out of your grasp. You want to hold on, but eventually, they let go of your grasp. We do have our sweet memories, which I hope helps sustain us.

God bless and stay well,

Maddi

Hi Lynn,

I lost my dad when I was 11, and my mother when I was 16. Of course, at first it was devastating and so very sad. Now, I do have such sweet memories of them, and those memories make me so warm and happy! It is a good place to retreat...into my reverie. It is lovely there! I do have a lovely life now, too, with my husband and daughter, our friends, and all of my furry critter kids! God giveth and He taketh. I bless the time I had with those that are gone, but He gives me the joy of knowing that one day I will have an eternity with my loved ones! What a happy thought! And those times will be joy filled, no pain, no sickness...just happiness!

God bless and stay well,

 

Maddi

Hi Lyn!

I am sorry you are sick! No, no! nono That will never do! You tongue get well quick!

I have been down and out with pneumonia, and pancreatitis, and I think a minor flare of Crohn's. My RA kicked in pretty bad, and I had sores in my mouth and some on my face...so I think I was having a flare...but the pain from pancreatitis is so severe, I don't think any other tummy pain registers at that point. I did revert to the stinky skull sad !

God bless and stay well,

Maddi

You are so sweet. Yes, the pancreatitis pain is worse than any others I have experienced, bar the raw Crohn's Disease on my sit-upon. It was just as painful. It brought tears with every BM, I couldn't sit as it burned so much, and walking made me cringe!

But I am OK. I am so used to it now. I have been doing this for nearly 40 years! YUCK!

God bless and stay well.

Lots of love and prayers to you,

Maddi

Hi Lyn!

It is a very cold. but none the less glorious day! The Lord has blessed me with another beautiful Sunday! While at church, I will be praying for you (I pray any and everywhere, but church is special.) So I hope this stinky flare is over for you soon. As far as gifts from this DD, tell 'em "NO!" Don't accept any more gifts from 'em.! That particular gift giver is a devil devil !

Lotsa luvs and prayers for you!

God bless and stay well yeah ,

Hi Lyn,

So sorry I missed this post. I have been in and out of ER and doctor appointments, and I guess I just missed this one. So sorry!

I hope your dad is doing OK. I know it is nice to just be able to sit with him. Your memories coming back to him might help!

We, too have had a truly cold front. It is a little warmer today. Yesterday I dressed my front lawn with my lighted and animated deer, lighted trees, lighted snowman, and lighted nativity. It looks glorious...but I can't get my hubby to move his "horse" (LOL) and put the lights on the house. That always makes me so mad!

You do deserve some lazy time! Take it! YIPPIE! tongue

I am sure it will be nice to get back to church! I love going to church!

God bless and stay well,

Maddi

Oh, my lands! Lyn! I have heard (read) you speak of your mom so much (maybe it was in the past?) I did not know she passed. I know it's hard. And all of these sad, sad times popping up, anniversaries, passing of one so young (oh, my...I am so sorry for the young mom left with two small children. I know it must be sad remembering all of these things all at once. I always try to forego the sadness by remembering fun things that I did and had with that particular person. I am so grateful to have my memories when so many others don't. I will read your memorial to your mother. I know you loved her and worked so hard for her. She is at peace now and truely enjoying her rebirth!

I had been so very sick. I just couldn't sit at the computer. In and out of the hospital with my stinkin' pancreas! Then we had big winds that blew down our fence, rennovations began...new fence, new floors through out the house excet for the bedrooms and now it is painting fest! All of our furniture..including my computer, was stored in the garage. So I have either been sick, or tired or sick and tired LOL! And just recently, my beloved Chihuahua dog, Peanut, died. sad She died in trying to deliver pups. She was at the Veterinary hospital, but they could not revive her stopped little heart. All three of her puppies were still born.

If you would like to see the progress on our home, just go to:

and click on "A Day With Maddi". There is a bunch of stuff there, some about Crohn's Disease, so you can check out the Index, and if anything strikes your fancy, just click on it!
