It was sure nice to see the sun come out this afternoon. Having the sunshine about all the time in Oklahoma, you really miss it when it doesn’t show up… I took care of the house plants, picked up around the house, fixed lunch, fixed supper, and did two loads of laundry… The roses, mums, and pansies are really looking good. I hope I am able to enjoy them for a long time before the bad weather comes… Dave has been spending a lot of time in his hidey-hole. At least I always know where to find him. If he isn’t in there he is out flying his planes… Tomorrow I go for my spa treatment, which includes a facial, massage, manicure, and pedicure. It was a Christmas gift from Kenny and Kathy. I can’t wait… Lori called… Goodnight All… Keeping The Faith In Oklahoma
A web page about the life of a lady who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
- Name: Mary Lockhart
- Location: Piedmont, Oklahoma, United States
I live in Piedmont, OK, with my Husband of 50 years who has been very supportive. We have 2 sons,David and Kenny, 6 grandkids, and 6 great grandkids. I enjoy feeding and watching the birds and squirrels. Before I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, I ran a Licensed Day Care Home for Infants for 15 years. I noticed I wasn't able to remember important things and having problems with my speech. I was experiencing severe headaches. I would get lost. I didn't know how to use the computer. At the age of 55, I told my doctor. I was sent for an MRI. which showed a large amount of shrinkage. I went to a neurologist who sent me for two days of testing. I was diagnosed with dementia of the Alzheimer's type. My husband and I were both in shock. I had to give up my job. I went to see a social worker. I've taken Aricept for 11 years. I can now use the computer and even do this web page. I also host a chat room for dementia patients. This is a very lonely disease. I don't want anyone to feel as lonely as I did when I was diagnosed (I thought I was the only one over 50 that had Alzheimer's). In 2006 I started taking Namenda. Also I was told I have a mixed dementia, Alzheimer's/Vascular.
