It has been a rough week! To sum it up rather quickly, I had a doctor visit in which he said that I am progressing and I need to let Allen have more control so to speak and quit trying to be super woman! I am finding it easier to let go of some things and I will continue to hang on to what I can still do best and that is be an advocate of this horrific disease. The weekend plans have changed, we are not going to California..................long story! Probably would have been an earthquake any way. So, we are going to hang aroung the house and get some trees and stuff cleaned up in the field. Allen was able to save his vacation days that he took off for this weekend. Thank God he has an understanding boss.
He had a doctor visit yesterday and he is scheduled for an open MRI and mechanical lumbar X-rays next week. He may be having back surgery after we get back from D.C. I say that becasue he won't have a follow up visit until just a couple of days before we go to D.C. So, he may get an extended vacation. I am now finding that people that I thought were there for me, really are not. When you truly need them and they feel they are going to have to give something of themselves they quickly find an exit. I had heard this from many other's that have dementia but some reason I thought I was lucky. Seems like it is going to be a role reversal for awhile..............I will have to be the carepartner. I truly believe God will watch over us and keep us safe for he knows my limits.
Take care and God Bless!

Love Always, Tracy
