I'm just gonna say it--Alzheimer's.

For the last 13 years I have seen this coming. The first thing I noticed was during the drive to his moms in 2003. We had made the same roads from the time we moved to Oklahoma in 1962. That's what--41 years. On the transition road from Ft. Worth to Dallas we got on this particular strip and he says "I've never been on this road". I made the mistake of saying yes we have. He got all mad. 
Ummmm????
Is this Alzheimer's. ??
Other things cropped up. 
He retired, and then I got of a chance to really see the decline. 
Did I acknowledge the signs.
No I didn't. I just ignored them. 
But this disease doesn't stop, slow down or go away.

Do I like it? 
NOT!!
