Great, great story. You could make a sequel if you wanted, Duck and Jordan.

I can only echo what has already been said. My own mother never suffered from Alzheimer's, but I have known others who did. The word heartbreaking doesn't come close. So I read your story with a sad smile and a glass of melancholy at my hand. You nailed it from the start.
Then I got to the last line and laughed out loud like a nutter. What our household calls "left turn without signaling." Few can do it well; you are one of them.

Wow I loved this! You made an awesome fic about his mother, his thoughts of her and whatnot, and ended it with...well the Ziva part kind of creeped me out because what if she killed him one day before he was truly ready? XD But it was awesome1

Wonderful. It made me cry, laugh, it was a fitting tribute to a wonderful woman, an actress we will miss terribly. She had the comic timing that turned minutes of screen time into a personality that will resonate through the show in all its years.
I loved the piece about Jordan. I see them becoming quite the couple - forget the age difference. But the bus boy, he really must stop shirking his duties. Of course, Mother Mallard could see him as Groundskeeper Willy, that will really make Ducky's life interesting.
A chef, something disturbing in a Medical Examiner. Delightful! Kind of harkens back to the butcher, and paints an image that will also complicate Ducky's life.
Thank you for introducing the relations of the other characters into the situation. I can just see Gibbs as the handyman, and reliable servants are so hard to find. Will mother take him on?
Of course, Ducky won't go under any needle, he'll go on the 18th hole of his favorite Scottish course with a nimlet in his hand! So says

"Bodies never designed for such a long life span, were being kept alive by the wonders of modern medicine while the souls that inhabited them longed for release."
These were my father's words practically word for word as he struggled with COPD
A very touching story, thanks for sharing!

Great last line!

Oh, I read this story with a sad understanding, having seen my father-in-law slip sadly down into the darkness that is Alzheimer's disease. Still, the necessity of total care is more than one person can cope with and these institutions fill a real need.
Still, after all that angst, I admit to laughing out loud at the last line. Oz Geek, this is pure evil and I admire you for it.
