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.

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.

Denied

So it's official.
Hubby received his official decision from the Veterans Association regarding Aide and Attendance and the word is that although he does need 24 hr care he does not qualify for it since his condition is not part of his service connected disability. I was aware this would be the road block.
SO...
Onward we go just like we have in the past. And that's okay :)

I did learn one thing in the decision.
Apparently his records indicate that he was showing signs of dementia in Jan 2005.
How was I blind to this?!

Oh well, I'm not going to dwell on it as a negative.
I'm going to concentrate on the here and now and I am FULLY going to concentrate on his words to me last night.

I thought he was asleep when I crawled into bed.
He stirred and rolled over toward me and said,
"You know, I sure do love you."

You know what Hubby? "I love you too" :)
And I gave him a good night kiss.
