Love and Alzheimer’s: April 2019

22 Nov

Wednesday, April 3:  I had a colonoscopy a little over a week ago. The doctor found a tumor, probably cancer. I just had a CT scan and it came out that it has not spread. Dr. Mullin thinks that it is stage 1 and I see a surgeon tomorrow about getting it removed. I feel pretty […]

24 Oct

Friday, March 1:  It is around 8AM. Vera is still asleep. She slept well, only getting up once to pee but I did have to get up because she had previously closed the bathroom door and had gotten into the kitchen area. I showed her the toilet and she came back to bed and fell asleep […]

Tuesday, February 5, 2019:  It is mid morning. We just took a walk in the sunshine but the temperature was a chilly 40 degrees. There were still some folks walking around in their shorts and tee shirts. We were bundled up. Vera is napping on the one chair in our bedroom while I am in the […]

Saturday, January 5, 2019.  It is the middle of the afternoon. It is raining outside but not as much as was promised. We were able to take a walk this morning and went out at lunchtime to pick up a bison burger salad from the Counter. Vera seemed to enjoy the burger more than the last time […]

12 Aug

Thursday, November 1:  We just had a really fun date and I wanted to write about it. Vera is now sitting on the couch watching an old silent movie with great music. I don’t know what it is.  I felt tumesced, I think a lot from the volatile stock market and negative energy from the News […]

Wednesday, October 3:  It is mid morning. We have taken our walk and Vera is sitting next to me. She was napping but just had a little coughing.  Last night we fell asleep around 11PM but Vera got up soon thereafter and was upset about her drawstring on her pants. She said it was in one piece. […]

Love and Alzheimer’s September 2018

8 Jun

Saturday, September 1:  It is around 2PM. We just had lunch. Vera is sitting near me. I grilled an octopus after boiling it. It came out quite tasty. I probably could have boiled it a bit longer, as it was quite chewy. We took a walk this morning to Whole Foods. We had not been walking […]
