Your poor husband! He's had health issues in the past but nothing as devastating as this. It's as though you are already losing him, yet remaining in a sort of neither-here-nor-there state. Alzheimer's disease is prevalent in my husband's family on both sides, and both sides are numerous and long-lived. So while few of them have been stricken with cancer and then made wonky by the pain medications they must take to make life endurable, their minds still have deteriorated, eventually meaning separation one from another, one spouse at home, the other in a care facility, both of them in a sort of limbo. I am relieved and gratified to hear your sons and their wives are being so supportive. What a boon that is. Again, I am so sorry, Maewyn. It does seem the luck of the draw (except in the case of heavy drinkers or smokers), not anything resulting from life style choices and health habits, who gets a devastating disease. But it is always devastating.


P.S. I meant to say I am so happy to hear your current job is a marked improvement. Hurrah for lights in dark places, wherever they appear!
