Hi everyone - I haven't posted for quite some months now but I just wanted to let you know that we have now got a diagnosis for my Dad. You all provided me with excellent advice - my Dad was in denial and very stubborn and your advice helped me and my Mum get Dad seen by the doctor (with a few little white lies) and eventually the memory clinic - thank you for your help and your suggestions. It has taken six months but last Wednesday after many assessments and a CT scan we now have been told that Dad does have Alzheimers and although this is very upsetting for us, it is also a relief to know what we are facing. Dad is going to be starting on Reminyl which I believe can help slow down the process (fingers crossed). As Daddy's little girl this has come as a real blow to me (I think I was hoping for a it to be something else - though deep down I knew), so in order to provide Mum with the emotional support she needs I am going to have some councilling sessions to help me come to terms with it and be at my best to help going forward. We aren't sure what will be around the corner for us - Dad is still himself, though he is very repeatative and has short term memory problems. But he is able to joke about it and has accepted that his memory isn't what it used to be. He is still stubborn though and won't write things down - but we are working on that. I hope you don't mind if I re-join the discussion forum, as I am likely to have many questions - and hopefully I will now be in a position to help others. Thank you all. Gromit.
