Good News...Bad News?

Mom had her MRI on Thursday and called to read me the letter she received with the results.
From what she read to me, I would interpret the results that we caught it early, 
as there was no evidence of a specific part of the brain being affected, 
no evidence of strokes or tumors,
but a decrease in brain size that is common with age and memory loss.
Mom is convinced that the diagnosis of Early Alzheimer's Disease
is no longer a valid one based on what she read.

I feel like we're back at square 1
in a way.

And after spending the evening with her,
patiently repeating information that she seemed to hear for the first time, each time...
I feel discouraged
and sad...
