Hi, Carol

All is fine, just a lot of different things going on in our family.

My dad is doing OK at the VA nursing home. He knows we are his family, but no longer recognizes us by name or who we are exactly. This is the Alzheimer's advancing as expected, but it still is sad.

Thank you for asking.

It's good to hear from you, Dave.

I'm sorry about your dad's decline. I know that you and your wife have first-hand experience with the entire progress of the disease, from watching her father go through it, but knowing it's going to happen doesn't make it any easier. It's hard to think of many things sadder than your own parent not knowing you by name.

Thanks for checking in.
