Eating and Alzheimer's challenges
Friday, February 05, 2016
DH has Alzheimer's, and I am seeing so many changes in him coming on fast.
Just an example: He used to be a big time veggie and salad eater. Now he has instructed me to not make him any salads. He only likes onions baked potatoes, Costco blueberry muffins and broccoli now.
For over a month, all he would eat was pork. I'm not sure if he is past that because I have been trying to make more interesting meals.
He refuses to eat the healthy Apple Waldorf Salad. He mainly drinks Ginger Ale in place of all the milk he used to drink.
I made one of his favorites the other day: Manhattan Clam Chowder. He actually ate a bowl of it, then decided he "didn't like it all that much". I gave him another bowl of it yesterday, and he ate it up with no complaints.
Tomorrow he goes for his driving road test, and I have every limb and joint on my body crossed that he doesn't pass it. I think it is NUTS that our DMV passes people with Alzheimer's so they can get out on the roads!! But as the people in the DMV say "Well, he Passed the test!".
Everyone, please be aware that we have a lot of people on the roads who have no business being on them. Drive defensively. You never know…….one of those drivers may be my DH, who shouldn't be driving at all!
I think all the DMV rules and regulations need to be severely looked at. The DMV is an entity unto itself, and sure has some screwy laws!!
ANyway, thanks for listening. You Sparkies are my main source of support, and I am grateful to have found you!!
