Tonya, so glad you are feeling better. It took John a while to get over his dental surgery in early November, so give yourself time. It is likely normal to take a bit longer to recover.

Craig, thank you for sharing. I cannot get the early dementia helps link to open for me, and I would love to see if there are other things I could be doing for John. Must be something wrong with my Adobe Reader.
Does anyone have it in another format so I can read it?
Thanks,
Pat

Wow - what an interesting thread! Thanks to all of you who share so much of yourselves and thank you Craig for sharing. i wish my mother was as brave as you are and willing to face reality and accept the truth. I think that she would have a better remainder of her life - more fulfilling - and she would stop blaming those who are trying to care for her for the problems that come with her DLB. Good luck to you. I hope that your amazing spirit continues to serve you so well.

Amen to that, Liz! My husband was similar to your mother in that he was in denial well past his being diagnosed and of course I was the one with the problem. I had been urging him for years to see a physician and did not even suggest dementia but hinted that maybe he had small strokes or something like that which could be treated or prevented. Oh, well..hindsight is 20/20, as they say. :cry:

Thanks Pat:

Your posts are always so comforting. Being in the position of having to be the caregivers for my mother is extremely stressful and it is so wonderful to get insights, suggestions, and support from others who understand what we are going through. I hope that you and your husband are doing well. I know that it is a difficult road to have to take.

Liz
