First off want to say to Pam that I am to sorry to hear about Hutch – so caught up in my own problems I completely overlooked that you had to let your friend go! My heart goes out to you.

Tia has deteriorated today somewhat…starting to drool (new thing) …paces in circles all the time now and constantly gets stuck in a corner now matter how small and then cries until someone comes to release her from that position – I had thought about putting her in another room at the other end of the house at night so we can get some sleep but the problem is she is so frail that when she slips over she cant get up so I cant go far or she gets frantic if she has fallen over…. I begin to wonder at the quality of life left to these poor souls with dementia, can we assume they are content with the way their life is?
