How wonderful for you. Please let us know when you have your appointment. After you get tested, it will be interesting to hear about what the doctor finds...if you don't mind sharing the information.

Hi VRS. And to be worked into the equation is the brain tumor, which might be causing some of your cognition problems. So a good neurologist will possibly  be able to figure out what's going on.

And it's good that the facility is close.

looks like I may have spoken too soon.. this doc may not take medicaid either.  They are going to call me back. took me all morning to get ahold of them. now waiting for them to call back..grrrr. if not Il go to grand rapids the alz org people(local chapter have promised to help me get there(2 hrs away).

 

Also talked to a friend who works for alz..shes the one who told me about this website... has alot of good advice and is great to talk to. I asked her some questions, said.I just needed her thoughts....she is very supportive and agrees it needs to be checked out...gave me alot of good ideas.

I almost fell asleep during my first test.  I had undiagnosed sleep apnea and used to fall asleep at the drop of a hat. 

 

For my second test, the examiner broke it up into two sessions.

My third test was broken up into three sessions.

The examiner should take your physcial conditon into account and allow you a break.
