Mimi posted this link on the Caregiver's board.  Dr. Doraiswamy, who wrote The Alzheimer's Action Plan, is answering questions in their Ask the Expert section this week.  I saw the questions but I did not see any answers yet.

Here is the link:

Iris, Thanks for the link. I would love to see the Dr answer the questions that are being asked.

 

Sorry I have been AWOL lately I had low low b-12 and hemaglobin levels  requiring a iron infusion and afterwords I had a bad reaction. It really took me down for a few weeks and it didn't do anything to help my memory.

 

 

I started a seasonal job at our local U-Bake store.....need the $$. It isn't to taxing and helps keep my mind active.

 

Last piece of news.....I'm gonna be a first time grandma this May. I hope and pray I can keep stable and enjoy the baby for as long as I can.

 

How r things with you??

Congratulations on your grandbaby-to-be!  Do you knit?  You can be kept busy making baby booties and such. 

Contratulations also on your new job!  What is a U-Bake store?  We don't have those here yet.  Do people come in to bake their own goodies?

I'll check the link and see if Dr. Doraiswamy answered any questions.

Part One of the answers.  I have not read them all yet, but I like the fact that Dr. Doraiswamy took the time to address many of the questions.

Thanks for letting us know and for providing a link, Lane.

I read a few of the answers, I have to read more tomorrow.

It's good to get answers from an expert.
