This is dementia, it's not just a memory problem.
My husband was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in Oct 2007. This is our story. The ups and downs, the sorrows and joys. A non clinical view of living the Lewy life.
Our story ended Feb 11, 2014. Lewy Body dementia hasn't been cured yet so until it is, this blog will be timeless in it's approach to caregiving, love and faith. It's a daily approach to those things.
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.

Since living with Lewy Body Dementia, I realize more and more that, to Hubby, I am literally his everything.
Yet somehow, the meaning does not look or feel like the mainstream romance definition for movies, books and music for some reason.
We need a song :)
