A family gathering

I took my mother to a family gathering over the weekend.  At 9 a.m. she remembered we were going, but when I called her at 2:45 to let her know we were about to leave to pick her up, she had forgotten, didn't know anything about it, and had to change her clothes.  She "covered" so well at the party (with me in the background reminding her who each person who greeted her was) that someone told me that he felt she could still beat him at pinochle and that she was "as sharp as she ever was."

I watched a 60 Minutes report on Alzheimers and Dementia last night.  It all looked very familiar.
