thank you so much for your caring & encouraging comments and emails regarding charlie! they made us feel so good, especially scott who now has a heightened sense of awareness of the importance of taking care of ourselves, too.
scott took charlie to the geriatric psychiatrist on thursday who gave him a test and he did really well. he answered 24 out of 26 questions correctly (not sure we could) and the doctor said many people in their 80s develop symptoms of dementia. the doctor prescribed two medications for charlie, and so far, he is a different person! it's like night & day talking with him, and thank god (and i do mean god) for the giants winning the game because he loves football.
so, onward on upward as we go. there was a small snowstorm this weekend and fortunately charlie lives near central park so we got to trapse around in it. today, it's in the 50s and the snow is all but forgotten.
ps just as i figured out how to add the white frames to my photos really easily in lightroom, i decided not to use them at all. oy!
