Book Description

Ron panicked as he heard the doctor tell him his wife Ella had Alzheimers. Before her diagnoses, he had been afraid to even think the word Alzheimers, let alone say it aloud. He knew Alzheimers was a cruel disease, and was convinced it signaled the end of their life. Still, being an optimist, he declared war on Alzheimers, a war he vowed to win. Following weeks of research, he developed his own plan. It was simple, had only 4 words; Love, Humor Patience and Pictures. Sounds simple right, but Ron knew they were only words and words without action, meant nothing.

Sample Chapter

The Good the Bad the Funny and Funnier

My part is easy. Love does! Love does whatever needs doing, and never complains or thinks it's anything special. Ella on the other hand, continues to think it is, and still wants to help. So far, the only job I've found for her is folding the laundry, but thinking that's not enough, she's found what she thinks is a way to thank me, she gives me a tip. Each time I move her from the couch to the wheelchair and onto the potty, she tips me by releasing one, two or sometimes a series of bursts from somewhere below her waist that I think she considers air fresheners. So, naturally, every time I get a tip, I race toward the nearest exit, trying to escape the, uh …air fresher. While attempting my escape, I always stumble a bit, as if maybe I'm drunk, and make some incredibly crazy faces. Each time I do, my sweet Ella sits there and laughs so hard she almost cries. Humor, remember, is one of our major weapons in our ongoing battle with Alzheimers, and thus, the reason I do these things. Besides, it's fun for both of us.
