Hi Nance
Thank you for the Link, I will go to it and see what I can find.
I also went to the Dementia team and joined it.
Also started a new Team under ALZHIEMERS.
So we will see what comes of it. Love Rosalyn

It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

Roz, I found a Spark team for you! Here's the link to get there.... http://tinyurl.com/2r8lcc

It's a team of only 8 very nice people all dealing with Dementia AND Alzheimer's! Not sure what made me search with 'Dementia' as the search word, but it got results.

Check them out. Ma'am....there's some great support there for you! Good luck!

Janis and Nance, I want to thank you for your posts on this subject, even though you don't have to deal with it.
It is something we may have to ALL deal with at some time in our lives, so the more we know about it, the better.

Leslie, thank you for the info you passed on to me, it sure does help to have a friend that knows what is happening, and someone you can talk to.

I know when I was told about me DH having it, it hit me like a Ton of Bricks.

My DH has a Dr appiontment on Monday, and I will ask him what stage Stan is in.
He also, like your MIL, has Diabitis. and will not eat right for it, so that is a problem.

Well that is about all for now, so thanks again for all your posts and input. Hugs Rosalyn

Rosalyn, We're all here for you but I do believe support from others dealing with the same issues would be beneficial. Cancer is the ugly disease prevelant in my family so I'm no help either. Good luck and wishing you all the best!

Roz, I feel really bad that nobody has posted on this subject! We don't have a single case of this nasty disease in our family so I cannot help a bit. BUT...why not post this same subject on the Community Cafe thread in search of others that do? There must be dozens of them and I am surprised there is no team set up for support. There sure needs to be. Maybe with a little push from YOU...that could happen?

It is my DHs 87th Birthday Get-Together today at our Sons house, next door.
Another Son and his Family will be here pretty soon from Portland.

The Topic is as follows:-
Hi, is there anyone else in this group that has Alzheimers in there imediate family????

My DH has it and has been under the Drs care for it for about a year now.
It is a bad desease, and it is worse sometimes, I think, on the other ones around them.

If there is anyone else here, I would like to compare , and sometimes we could cry on each others shoulders.

Hugs to all, Rosalyn
