I have been following the videos of Molly and Joey for a few months and it is heart breaking. Molly has Lewy body Dementia that is what my husband has but he also has Parkinson so his body is stiff and rigid. This documentary is well worth watching it will give you a glimpse into what happens when a loved one suffers with Lewy Body Dementia.
He is down to 125 lbs and at his healthy weight, he was 182 – the last time we weight him; he was 140 now 124 so skinny.
He is not making any sense at all – he jabbers in his language and when I can understand him, he worries about his grown kids being OK. His kids never come and see him – his sons are too busy it breaks my heart. His daughter does and he is so happy when she, and his granddaughters come over.
It a misnomer to think he doesn’t know when people come to visit him. They are thinking that he doesn’t know who they are anyway – but he does feel their love and energy. He needs his children to come and just love him.
They are in their 40’s for god sake, it’s not like they are children.
I have always put off making funeral arrangements of any kind I thought when the time comes we will deal with it. Now that I really think the time is near, I am compelled to start getting things together. I don’t want all of his many brothers, sisters and children to come in and just take over.
It’s funny how as time goes on I am changing and rapidly. For the first time in my life I feel like an adult like I am stronger I didn’t realize the strength I had. Having to take charge and figure everything out myself this last few year makes me realize how strong I really am.
Going through it I felt like I was going to fall to pieces I didn’t.
What a wonderful day we had. My brother came out from Tooele, and we put my husband in the car, so we could go for a drive. Since I have been giving my husband, a supplement that actually causes ketosis (Keto//OS) he has just become so animated and his memory is so much better.
Before I started giving him Keto OS, he was taking a turn for the worst. I was in tears most of the time – but the improvement is astonishing now he is walking with assistance, when we drove passed a park that his mom and he use to walk in he told us about it, he even said this has been a wonderful day! Just seeing him smiling when we were out for the drive made my heart sing.
Before we started giving him this supplement, he was not walking, very lethargic and was in that state you see with Dementia patients – it looked like he was sleeping with his eye’s open and out of it most of the time.
I am not being “pollyanna” or pretending he is going to get better because of the supplement. My purpose for trying this is so he have a better quality of life as long as we have him here with us.
This product seems to be living up to my wish.
I will put the product link on my resource page
For me it is about brain health but it also helps in weight loss. This is an amazing product…
