Some Of Those Changes

Earlier I mentioned some things had changed. One of the big changes was Sue's doctor now saying she does not have Alzheimer's Disease.That was quite a shock to all of us. The Doctor didn't really explain how or why he feels she does not have Alzheimer's or what could be causing her memory problems. Since she doesn't have Alzheimer's (according to the doctor) she was taken off her medication. We were very concerned about that at first. Now we see that she has good day's and not so good day's. That's really not much of a change, she had good and not so good day's when she was on her med.'s. Sue's adult Daughter and her two Grand Children she is raising are in the process of moving in with us. I am sure that is going to be filed under big change for all of us. Sue likes to have company so that should make her happy. It will make me feel better knowing Sue is not alone when I have to leave home for a few hours. I'm sure we'll be seeing another Doctor at some time in the future. She doesn't want to right now and I'm not going to push her into an argument.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.


  1. OMG!!!! I am so glad to hear from you. I must say that is a big change. Not having Alz's. What ever she has might be fixable. It might be a chemcial unbalance of somekind. Good luck with finding and what's up and with you new house mates.

  2. Not AZ? Wow.

    Of course, having memory problems for whatever reason is horrible, particularly on the spouse.

    I've learned firsthand how difficult caregiving as spouse is -- ever since Mr. AOW had a stroke in September 2009. The stroke has left him paralyzed on one side.
