he has progressed in his disease and was recently placed 
in a hospice house as he enters the last stage of this disease
his progression really bothers me a  lot 
i hope that my family can handle this as well as his wife and 
two girls have done
its a painful journey they are taking
i know if my diagnosis is correct that this is the path i will take like
the one my mother took and the one that he is on now

im hoping though that my journey along this path is at its 
beginning and that i have time to stop and enjoy life as much 
as i can 
i try to do that everyday as i know the clock is ticking

lets support alzheimers research so that his kids and mine
and yours will have options for treatments

its almost within our grasp now

our thoughts and your prayers for his family please as they enter
this difficult time
