top ten

there are top ten lists for everything

our video titled former physician takes action
which is linked above on the top of this blog
under video on my story with alzheimers
last year was entered
in the american academy of neurology top neurology
video contest
although it was not the winning video it was the most watched
video of all the entrants

yesterday we were notified that the www.healthline.com
internet website
ranked the top ten videos on alzheimers last year

we were ranked in the top ten
we feel honored to be in the group
as one of the other top ten videos
was alive inside

the one about the old gentleman
with alzheimers who seemed so obtunded came
alive in front of our eyes when  i pod ear phones
were placed on his ears and music he use to sing
was played
what a transformation
this one was on most major news programs last year

we feel honored to be in the same category as
that video

here is the link to our video
on the 10 best alzheimers videos of 2013 on
the healthline web site

each time i watch our video
i tear up
it makes me appreciate where i am right now

especially after losing my younger brother with
this disease this summer

although not able to work as a physician
i am still able to do those things in life i like to do
gardening spending time with my wife she and family volunteering
and know that im doing it

thanks again to ut southwestern alzheimers research center
for doing such a good job with this video
