Did I mention that Alzheimer’s Disease sucks?

Yea, I probably have… a few times.

I’ve not talked about this much of late (not publicly anyhow – a couple of close friends who I confide in know what’s been going on) , but things sound like they will be coming to a head tomorrow (Friday) with a medical examination. I won’t say much more about what’s been going on till I hear from home how things turned out, but at this point, I’m praying the least worst option happens, and that sucks, when all the options aren’t that good. The family has gone through a lot – my Mom in particular, and I hope the outcome tomorrow is one that minimizes further grief for everyone. It’s very sad to hear what has happened with my grandfather. He’s not the person I knew.. but I know it’s not his fault.

As I always do when I post about this, I’d ask you all to consider donating to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada to help find a cure or vaccine or better treatment for this disease.

    That’s very generous of you, Aaron. Thanks for your best wishes.

  • I pray that everything works out, Scott. My father has dementia and it really is one day at a time right now.

  • Sorry to hear it Scott. I had an uncle that succumbed to Alzheimer’s.

    Hoping for the best for everyone involved.

  • Hi Scott,
    My grandma has Alzheimer’s. Its been at least 15 years. It gets worse with time. Very slowly. But once in a while, she will surprise you with a joke or a memory bump. You gotta take it as it comes.
