About me

Introduction My husband is experiencing the long, slow, inexorable decline of dementia. He has a vascular condition which makes him prone to brain hemorrhage and to progressive dementia. It has been 13 years since his first bleed, which led to his diagnosis. He has had three subsequent bleeds and deepening disability over this period. I am a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a friend, and a clinical social worker. Mostly, these days, I am a student of acceptance, adaptation, and loving in the face of loss and deep sadness. It's by far the toughest course I've ever taken.
