Todya srated out fine, got up took my meds, did the normall stuff. Fed the kity, let the dog out and fed and wtered hr, fed the bird had it on my shoulder whlie I was working on the beast of humanity. Took my granddauhgter to the park to paly and walk and enjoy her company and due what grandpas do, whatever that is. Leaving thngs went to hell in a =hand basket, I forgot where we were, luckily she took my hand and new where to go, I was clumbsy and feeling quite unstable both upstairs and bodily sies. Got home took I thing some orange juice, laid down and cried bgecause I has lost par to fo my day and may my granddaughter sad. This fricken disease really sucks. I waitn on My Lord to take my hand willing to go with him. I have tought serouisly oabout doing something, but wor=uld screw that up. Be paraliiized and not know it or who I was. Wahat a bitch. This is my life now. One day at a time, it leaves me further behind and I catn catch it. Keep those cards and letters coming in, I due answer them, the best I can, normalllly the first time with spel ckr, after that you get me.

God Bless You and This Great Country of Ours!

You're on my mind today, Joe. I've been having computer problems, plus very busy with Daddy, so I haven't been able to write, but I think and pray about you and Lynn every day.

Are you OK, Joe? Well, as OK as you can be under the circumstances?? Missing your posts!!

You leave me at a loss for words, Joe, I thank you so much for giving me such insight into your illness.

You have helped me immeasurably with my Mother, who is very quickly forgetting so much. It is hard for her, she gets very frustrated.

I am able to help her with the info that is available here. Thank you.

I can't imagine how scared and frustrated you must be. My aunt suffered from AD and it was so difficult to watch her struggle with it.

I think you sound like a great grandfather. I know your grandkids must really appreciate the time you spend with them.

God bless.
