STOP THE PRESSES! Bill and Dondra Forgot Their Own Anniversary!

We really did! It was May 31st. Many of you know this was our second marriage and our first anniversary was February 27th. So I guess I can list forgetting that special day as another symptom !!! HAHA!

In other news, I'll be going for eyelid surgery in a week and a half. I have drooping lids and Medicare will pay for that procedure if the lids are low enough to obstruct my vision. There's also a possibility they may approve surgery on the bags under my eyes which are so large I can catch rainwater in them, but that's not a guarantee.
If that can happen, I'll feel like a new man.

Next, I'll be going for a sleep study to determine the amount of sleep apnea I have, which is so bad it's scaring Dondra and making me sleep poorly. I already know I'll be getting a machine, it's just a matter of what the settings will be. According to Dondra I have stopped breathing for as long as 34 seconds. This she played back to me on the tape she used to record it. Before, I never wanted to do this because I thought it would make me look and sound like Darth Vader, but now I know I need it, if only to sleep better and feel good the next day.

I had a couple of weird symptoms today: I couldn't figure out how to control the volume on my computer and couldn't identify my deodorant, even though I have been using the same one for 20 years.

Today, I want to link you to the Alzheimer's Association website for some interesting  reading. If you are a caregiver of a patient or know someone who is or someone who has Early/Younger Onset you might link them to this good information.
