Comedienne Kathy Griffin recently shared a heartbreaking post to Instagram regarding her beloved mother Maggie's struggle against dementia.
She said in the post that she "misses" her mom, who does not recognize her anymore. She also said that it felt like "just yesterday" that she was still able to have full conversations with her mom, whose personal escapades have been a part of her comedy routine for many years.
Griffin has been open about her mother's declining health. It was in January of this year that the comedienne revealed that her mother was suffering from memory loss.
"As heartbreaking as this is, I feel the need to share some important info about my mom, Maggie. I've always been honest with you all, but this one is really hard. My mother has rapidly fallen into the throes of dementia," Griffin said in a series of statements on Twitter.
She also assured her fans at the time that her mother was not in pain and getting 24-hour care.
