The valley in flood
After big summer rains, water roars down the creek and floods the valley. At one end the dam becomes a raging waterfall, and I wonder where the turtles shelter. But when the dam settles down again, there they are: heads bobbing and saucer-shaped shells just visible beneath the water.
- I started this blog in 2009 when I became a full-time caregiver. My husband had been diagnosed a few years earlier with primary progressive aphasia. Over the next four years until his death in 2013, we went on a journey of discovery about this rare condition. My blog is about what I learned, how we both coped and how the journey deepened our love and appreciation of each other. Allen’s journey is over, but mine goes on.
