I was at a family reunion yesterday. Well, my dad's mom has alzheimers pretty bad. Like, my hubby's in the military and I and the babies have been living around home since Thanksgiving. Everytime she sees me she tells me it's so good to see me, so glad I get to visit, etc. It's pretty progressive. My dad takes her to the grocery store. My parents also prepare all their meals for the week and package them up, as she can't do that anymore either. Well, her mother had it. Out of the 7 siblings still alive 5 of them have it. One is in their later 60s and already diagnosed with it. It's scary to think I could someday have it. My gramma is aware she has it, and always said she hoped she died before she got as bad as her mom. I worry my dad could inherit this...then really worry then if I would. What's anyones family history with this?
