Post Diagnosis
We have finally gotten a definite diagnosis of Severe Lewey Body Dementia. My husband's level of confusion is increasing much faster than previously. Hoping for a NH bed soon. AnneN

Anne, I'm glad that your husband has a definitive diagnosis; not glad that it's LBD. With your medical background, you can now better prepare yourself and others. I found that a specific diagnosis was very helpful in focusing my reading and explaining the disease to family and friends. Your husband is fortunate to have such a caring, knowledgeable spouse to help him through what must be a terrifying and unfamiliar terrain. Hang in there!
