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.

I See the Light

Hubby asks.
I look through the bathroom door into the bedroom as I gather clothes for the washing machine.
"Come here and help me with this lamp."
I ask Hubby if he wants it off and he answers yes.
I set the dirty clothes down on the top of the hamper and step into the room.
I move Hubby's over the bed table to reach the lamp and touch it.

The light goes off.

I look at Hubby and smile making sure this is what he wanted.
Hubby looks at me with the 'I can't believe it was so easy' expression and laugh, smiling back.

Hubby and I laugh together.
I hold his face and give him a kiss.
I say "I love you."
Hubby says
"I love you too."

It's a great moment.
