New and great information on my stepdad Carl!
For previous info, check here
Carl has been in a rehab for 3 months…waiting for diagnosis for something other than ‘just’ dementia. It has been so hard for him and my mom. FINALLY, after a ton of work and research by my stepbrother Tom (who is an angel of immense proportions!), Carl is being operated on today. He has NPH, normal pressure hydrocephalus, which presents as dementia..but has a precise set of symptoms in a definite order…a strange gait, and then dementia, and then incontinence. Today he will be having a shunt put in which will divert extra cerebrospinal fluid from his brain to his belly! In most cases, all or at least most of the symptoms GO AWAY!!! We are all so thankful that this is being done!
All prayers and positive thoughts will be appreciated today. I’ll let you know how things go:)
