My husband has declined very quickly in the past few months. The only word he can say is “yes”. He no longer can express what he wants to say. he’s not able to say if he’s in pain or if he needs anything. It’s frustrating. I experience a very heavy heart every day. I miss him. I’m so angry that I can no longer hold a conversation with him. It's a horrible disease. I hurt so deeply every day having to watch him go thru this.
Steve sorry to hear that, and I think R. will get there also due to past medical history due to be a preemie baby. I know its hard when you have a one sided conversation or asking yes or no questions. Mm hat is off to you for your patience. Good luck with her future care..
Aphasia is a feature of some dementias and happens for some people with Alzheimer’s. My wife hasn’t spoken in 5 years.
R. can still talk but sometimes its hard to follow her words, and for her to hold a conversation. Mornings are a lot better for her than afternoons due to her sundowners.
My husband can still talk but can’t hold a conversation. His mom had Alzheimer’s and she stopped talking.
