Husband's last camping trip

No mercy

Rough night.  I had to take husband in for his MRI last night.  At 10:45 PM.  Yes, you heard right.  10:45 PM.

Because the new Dr up in Denver requests any new patients have to have had a recent MRI within the year, (his last one was in 2010) so, when making the request for husband, Dr A's nurse said we might have a 3 month waiting period to get in.  Luckily, she was able to book him in at the main hospital where they do MRI's 24 hours a day as they are also on stand by with the ER.  So, they squeezed him in.

I dreaded it all day yesterday.  But, it wasn't bad actually.  Husband was not too confused and we got in and out right away.  Also, his first MRI was a total body scan, and this time it was only the head.  Cause we all know what's wrong now.

I am going to call Dr A's office tomorrow and leave a message for him to read the MRI.  I want to know what the brain looks like now.

Husband's eyesight is failing him.  He has trouble seeing everything.  Is the part of the brain that controls the eyes being affected now?  I personally think so.  It happened so suddenly, within the past 3 weeks. 

This monster has taken away his ability to walk, talk, think.  Now, is it claiming his eyesight as well?  What a crappy situation.

Husband did not sleep well last night.  Could be he was overtired.  Too much stimulation.

Now all I can do is wait it out.  I want to get answers in regards to the eyesight. 

Wow, Alzheimer's has really done a complete and thorough job on husband.  Doesn't leave
anything untouched.

Always making sure when it "does it thing", it shows no mercy.
