Hello, I not been here in a while. Dealing with some heath issues of my ownL (Chrons disease, but thats a whole other story) My dad was diagnosed with alzherimers a guess a couple of years ago. Was having trouble with brothers, Took a great family vacation and made some great new memories with my dad. Thanks to Lyn who told me to make sure that I enjoy the time that I have left with him. Thank you lyn!!!!!!! Any way dad is not doing so great His dr took him of his alzheimers medicatation *only works for 2 years?) Cant be left alone at all any more, I think he is decling very rapidly. He went for a check up to reg doctore, and cna you believe they found cancer. It is in his bladder, stage 2. He will be starting Chemo in a couple of weeks. Of course he walks around saying the he is going to die. My poor mother. She his really going to have her hand full. I just went bacl tp work full time so I will not be around like I used to be. One brother is out west. (he comes in every month) My other brother help out when they can, but she really leans on me. I am gone at work all day, and really feel like I am letting her down. She need some help what should I do. I really do need to work, Kids going of to college. She will not have a stranger in her house to help her. She wont take dad anywere with out her. He won't let her leave. My sisterin law went over the other day so she could go to a wake (great outing) and he would not let her leave with out him, so she did not go. Any way, I am rambling.
Thank you for letting me vent. Hope everyone is doing ok. My thoughts are with any one effected from this terrable disease.
