Happy Belated Birthdays to Karen, our niece in West Virginia, Allison our granddaughter in Kentucky, and Happy Belated Anniversary to Kerry and Erin our grandchildren in Oklahoma… Dave and I celebrated our 48th anniversary on the 8th… Happy Birthday Barbara Ruth!!! Barbara is our friend in Noble, Oklahoma… I am back! Dave and I loaded up our motor home and our three dogs and went camping and fishing. We went about one hundred miles from our home. The fishing was great. I went fishing everyday that we were there. I was fishing in the sunshine, in the rain, and even in the dark. Most of the time that I was fishing, Shiloh our dog was sitting in my lap. Once when I was reeling in I caught her tail in the crank. I had to call Dave to help get her tail out… We had one mess of fish and hush puppies at the campsite. The rest I put in the freezer for later. I think our three dogs enjoyed camping as much as we did. Since we got home I have been busy unloading the motor home, cleaned it, doing laundry, going through the mail, and hundreds of emails. It is a lot of work but well worth it… Kenny mowed the grass and our acreage looks great. Thank you Kenny… I have been watching the news on the damage Ike has caused, so terrible. I checked on our friend Morris who lives in Houston and he was fine… Check out the photos of our trip below... 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.
