Post a behavioral ta-da!
Ken turned 65 on Saturday and I invited several people over for a drop-in during the day. I felt that a party might be overwhelming but wanted to acknowledge his special day and give friends and relatives an opportunity to see Ken. He had a wonderful day, recognized most of his visitors and at the end of the day told me it was "perfect" (from a man who almost can't speak). Of course, he slept almost the entire next day, completely worn out, but happy. And so am I! Sher

Sher (53) married 29 years to Ken (66) who was diagnosed with LBD in 2008, but it most likely began many years before.
