This is the story of Pam and John; she in her early 50’s and John is 62. Pam is a college professor. John taught at a local community college until diagnosed with Parkinson’s in March 2008, then Lewy Body Dementia in April.

John is doing well--no complaints about the stairs up to our cabin or the walk to the dining room. I was in tears at the end of the church service this morning. We have come here for a week every August for 12 years, and I wonder how much longer we will be able to come. It is hard to come back to a familiar place and have things be different. John did set out with the kids this afternoon to hike up to a view. He was going to take the easier route and he is using a hiking stick--I hope it worked ok for him.
