I my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's just over a year ago, as far as I understand he is still in the early stages and is on medication which helps I realiseit is a progressive illness with no cure so I try to enjoy the good days and we somehow muddle through the bad!
He also has prostate probs. (common in aman of his age - 79) we saw consultant today and were assured no cancer but to be checked again in a year, husband has been convinced he had cancer for a long time and I get fed up hearing him go on. Would have though he would have show n some relief at today's clinic but no reaction. Possibly that is to do with the mental health prob.. he never has been good at seeing the positive I know that I am pleased to have a rest from urology clinic.
Will be (I hope) a quiet Xmas for us and I am living a very different "old age" than what I had envisaged However life goes on and we will enjoy Xmas in a way that suit us . Hope all the others on Care for Life enjoy the season. Thanks for reading
