I Remember Judy - A Love Story - The End

Epilogue Towards the end of this story, I began to couch my words. There are many memories I want to relive by writing them here, but there are also memories best left to my wife and me. For the story’s purposes, there is nothing more to be gained (that the reader has not already read) by a detailed... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Fifty

And The Rest is Silence From the time I started this story, I kept asking myself how I would end it. Knowing the nearly inevitable path of patients with dementia, you can figure out where this story will end, or has ended. I don't care to recall or relive any part of that projected ending. I'll...

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Nine

The Long and Winding Road For several months, Judy was much more like the woman I had known all of our time together. We held hands and kissed as we had always done, and said our three words at every parting. It was a wondrous time for us, but then she began to change. We would be talking, and she...

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Eight

The Final Time I was hoping that after a day or so that Judy would snap out of the emotional coma that had engulfed her, but it didn't happen. She began to realize who I was, but she didn't respond to me as my wife had always responded to me. I would talk to her, hold her, hug her, and tell her that... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Seven

The doctor that had helped me when this first began to happen would still see Judy without charge, so I took her in about the middle of our eighth month without any money coming in. During that conversation, Judy blurted out that she was going to kill herself. Our doctor friend asked her what she... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story Part Forty Six

The Beginning of the End It took several days for both of us to realize what had happened. For a short period, Judy was much more like her former self. I'm not sure what I was, but 'nervous wreck' was probably the most apt description. She saw herself as free from the worry of hurting someone, and I... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Five

Three months after her collapse at the hospital, we were called to the neurologist she had been seeing. Judy was remarkably calm, but I was a bundle of nerves. I knew that she was aching to be told what she suspected; she was no longer able to work. I knew it was the truth, but I wasn't ready to... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Four

Slowly I Turn On the surface, Judy's return to work seemed to be seamless, but just as most people didn't see the changes going on before, they weren't seeing what was happening behind the scenes. The woman who had always been the sweetest thing I had ever known was becoming foul-mouthed and nagging... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Three

So Many Miles And So Little Time As it turned out, leaving earlier than we had initially planned saved Judy's job. Making the run north to US-10 was an easy run, and we were soon westbound on US-10. We had been running in smooth traffic until we hit a massive accident just east of New Orleans,... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Forty Two

We would live on the northwest side of Tampa for three months, and then we moved to the northeast side of Tampa. Judy had switched hospitals and didn't think we needed to move, but her agency did, so we moved. Six months later, we moved to Brandon, Florida for her to fulfill another two ninety-day...
