thinking of you on your birthday, finals


today is my younger brothers birthday
i got him a card and will send it to him today
im not sure if he will be able to know that i sent it to him

i tried to make it funny and with a funny picture on it so
that maybe in his alzheimers daze deep down somewhere
he can get some enjoyment from the birthday wish

he is in his 7th or 8th year of his alzheimers diagnosis and has
progressed so rapidly in the last 2 years
ive thought about him a lot in the last few weeks as i prepare
for my presentation on alzheimers at a alzheimers symposium
later this month
as ive read more and more about the early course of this disease
and what diagnostic tests are now becoming available and what
possible treatments may be available and what
we both might have done over our life time to have slowed this
disease in the two of us down some
we just didnt know
hopefully some of your out there or some of our relatives who are
younger our kids grand kids nephews nieces cousins friends are
listening to us to get involved and to do what can be done now
to slow the progress down

im thinking about him today as i do everyday
but maybe more today since its birthday

happy birthday bro
hope you are in there somewhere so you can enjoy this your day


off and on this weekend and thanks to the dvr i watched
three different final four ncaa tournamnets

the mens division 1 final four left me with only one team left in the
yes even my wife she picked them also
so in the end she guessed the final result just as well as i did
or my two sons
that just doesnt seem right
she doesnt really know does she

then i watched the division 3 finals with one of the teams that
is in the town i use to practice in
ive met the coach and have generally followed the program
over the years and only knew one of the players
they didnt win but i did see one of my former partners on the
bench as the team doctor

then the womens final four
those connecticut players seem to always be there dont they
even though this year they are such a young team
lookout for the next 3 years
ginos team will probably be there each of those years
guess he knows what hes doing

overall good basketball games
dang those girls sure are tall
