    Havn't posted for a while, my OH has been very poorly with his other medical conditions , 5 collapses averaging 1 a week.
    The day before yesterday rushed to hospital and would you believe it discharged the next day, Oh Yes I am sure you will believe it.!! Tests have been brought forward after me "stamping my feet" - shouldn't have to I know.

    I went to visit him at his Nursing Home tonight, he is aged 69, and how I wish I had the usual conversations with him about wanting to come home etc etc. Tonight I had 2 hours of conversation that I didn't know what he was talking about, it made sense to him but not to me.

    I know his medical conditions are having an impact on his Alzheimers but such a detrimental impact, I am hoping things will go back to what they were.

    SL.:(:(

    It`s hard to have a silver lining when life is so tough for you and your husband is so young. It seems medical conditions and infections have a much bigger impact on those with dementia than on those who do not have dementia. Just one more challenge .

    I do hope your husband`s condition improves and at least he recovers his language.

    Tonight I wish ...... it was me that had AZ, she'd do a better job looking after me than I can ever hope to do looking after her.
