I haven't posted for ages.... been busy and all of that. DH, Cyril, lost his place in the world last Friday... only for 24 hours, but he wanted me to drive him home, "Please", in his most gentlemanly manner.

Wanted to go home to where he had lived 35 years ago.... later he wanted to go "home" to Melbourne so he could find Alison (me).

I rang around to talk to somebody and they thought I was upset that he didn't know me. No!!! I was so upset that he could be in that lost state and I really couldn't help him.

We had family in yesterday for Xmas celebration and I am still not sure he knew who was there.... as always the gentleman and every now and then he would go to his bookroom and shut the door. How dreadful it must be. Today I think he is home and just wants to be near.... mmmm.... I think he needs a cuddle.

My love to all for a peaceful Xmas... AlisonM xxxxxx

Hello Alison... I am so happy we got a chance to talk and that you are feeling better... nothing like speaking with someone who understands... I know it's difficult watching dear hubby go down daily... but also glad to hear your back is better... hope to see you posting more once again.. take care

Hi Alison

How frustrating it is when we want to help those we love and there is nothing we can do. How terrible we feel that we cannot make things better for them. It is really difficult watching those we care about and not having any control over the situation.

Glad your husband is back "home" I'm sure that cuddle felt just as good to you as it did to him.
