I just looked at it


I had it recorded

I learned nothing from it, unfortunately. THey keep saying it's promising, but even the best news was that it slowed the decline of early stages of some of those tested by a fairly small amount. No cure.

And like the Glen Campbell documentary, it shows the earlier stages, and does not address the later stages at all.

I'm not complaining, I'm just saying it is worse than they portray.

My wife is in the early part of the later stage. She needs help with most everything, and the incontinence is one of the big challenges. I keep two sets of blankets, quilts, sheets, bedpads, all of it, and they go through the washer sometimes five times a week. She cannot go to the bathroom withnout help. She wears depends, and they don't work half the time. If they DO work, I have a much easier time, but I still have to really work at getting her into the bathroom, on the tiolet, cleaning thingsd up, changing clothes, and TRY to get her into the shower.

I can get her to go with me on short trips. Today we went to the horse, spent a half hour. Yesterday, we went on the lake in the boat, cruised for a half hour. The house is a locked place, she cannot go anywhere by herself. I dop all the work, but she does feed herself if I make it easy. like pizza or a sandwich.

Here is Jan, who helps me, with Betsy, on our boat ride yesterday
