my story revisited #128-who am i


he wrote this song after his dad was diagnosed with alzhiemers disease
was it about his dad or was it about him

this disease does make you do a lot of viewing inward

i read this week that alzheimers disease is the only disease in which the person dies twice

think about that 

i cried when i first heard this video
i cried when i wrote this blog 8 years
i cried when i listened to this video again this am

some of the tears this morning as i watched the video were tears of joy 
joy that i am so still mentally intact and doing all that i want to do 
when i wrote this blog below i didnt really think i would be able to write this blog today

on monday i will be interviewed by the financial times about my involvement with the aduhelm or aducanumab study
im not sure if it will be a written interview when published or a video interview since we are doing it via zoom

ill post it when its published

in two weeks i will get my 16th real infusion of aduhelm or aducanumab
in one month i will get another mri of the brain as part of the protocol for monitoring for side effects as i will get my third dose at 10 mg/kg the highest dose that is associated with microbleeds
if its ok then i dont have another mri of the brain for several months

kenny chesney wrote this song
this son put it to a video of his father
i watched it and cried
i watched it again and cried again
ok i cried again this morning again

if you have had a family member fade away
watch this video

each time ive watched it
i go deeper inside myself
thinking about the past and the future

click here to watch while he still knows who i am
this video made me do a lot of deep thinking this morning
