It has been a long time since my last post and I guess I should provide a few words of explanation.
While I have tried to keep my blog impersonal, preferring not to bias my posts with my own or my families' issues, I feel I need to give you some details.
About 5 years ago my wife, of 50 years, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's dementia. As a result our daily lives have been totally transformed. Despite our best efforts we have not been able to stop the deterioration, although it may have slowed it for a while. As it stands today, she is totally dependent on me, together with a support team of family and other carers. While my time remains very limited with virtually full time carer duties, with the support team in place, I do have some time to resume occasional posts.
Life can take unexpected turns, and we have no choice but to play the cards we are dealt.
With that off my chest, I apologise for my absence and for possible future absences in advance.
