This is dementia. It's not just a memory problem.
What you read in this blog is purely my own personal experience in dealing with Lewy Body Dementia every day.

This is not meant to offer any medical or legal advise.
I have no professional training in care giving or experiences in formal writing.
I'm just a woman that loves her husband deeply and wants to provide him with the best quality of life he can and chooses to have.
My prayer though this is "Lord, What am I learning from this; how can I use it help someone else and to glorify You?"
If just one person finds comfort in this public blog. I will feel like it was a success.

Gentle Reminders

It's been an emotionally tough day today for a vast many reasons.

Hubby for the last couple of weeks has been on a downhill slide.
Mobility coming and going at the drop of a hat.
Lots of extra wheelchair rides
LOTS of extra confusion.

But we are gettin through.

My post wont be long, I know, faint, right?

Tonight as I was attending to Hubby he looked up at me and asked me.
"Am I supposed to remember you?"
I answered calmly and matter of factly
"Yes, I am your wife, I am Kathy, and I take care of you.
And if it helps, You love me."

Hubby smiled at me and gave me a kiss.

Hey, I'm just delivering the facts ;-)


  1. God bless you Kathy. You have strength that I admire; words can not express my admiration for you.

    You and Hubby are in my thoughts.

  2. Just the facts, ma'am :~)

    One of the things that people who aren't in the middle of dementia don't always know is that are moments of happiness and joy. Yes, even in the hard days those little smiles and kisses can made a difference.
