Post Minneapolis Woman Caring for Husband with Advanced LBD(Blog)
"Island Swamp" is a relatively quiet blog by a Minneapolis woman whose husband John has "advanced LBD." He was placed in a nursing home last summer due to dementia-related behavior (example - pouring hot coffee on his wife). John is now receiving hospice care. He has been saying since last summer that he wants to die. Yesterday's post indicates that John has become violent towards the staff.

Thanks for the blog link. It's painful to read because it parallels our experience so closely but I bookmarked it and will read the rest a little at a time.

It's one of the saddest blogs I've read. "island girl" is quite honest about the situation.

Yes this is a very sad story and I remember from the very beginning when she set out for support due to her situation with John, she just plugs along each day ! Nice Gal !!
