Does the speech end because the patient CAN'T talk, or does it take too much energy? Four years since Frank was diagnosed, his speech varies from day to day, but I am so glad to say he is still the chatterbox he always was, and sometimes the words just tumble out from him. He is 90 this year, in a wheelchair, but still eating and drinking normally. I am thankful for each day, and sometimes believe the "experts" have given us the wrong diagnosis.
