Hi Mona-
My personal feelings on all the drugs that 'supposedly' slow the progression of Alzheimer's Disease are mostly negative.
Arisept did little to help my mom and dad.
I wanted to believe they would ultimately help but being the 'doubtful Thomas' that I am, I found the exact opposite. I feel that any drug is putting off the inevitable.
Maybe I've been saddled with the disease too long and my views are jaded, I don't know.
I love the fact that you've researched this disease as much as you have.
In cyberspace, you are not unlike an angel.
We need more caring people like you.
Keep on keepin' on...
Drop me a line someday and let me know how you're doing.

I find your delineation of your Dad's journey through the whats, whys and wherefores interesting and enlightening. It illuminates how confused is our grappling with the mystery of dementia, right now. How curious that the confusion in dementia research seems to correllate with your father's growing sense of his encroaching "stupidity".

Although I am not one to declare on any side of the multi-faceted, ever present after-death debate, IF some sort of conscious continues after death and IF that consciousness includes awareness of the still living, I feel sure your father is enjoying the journey on which you've embarked as a result of his life, laughing with appreciation and ironic delight and saying to others, "That's my daughter! Chip off the old block!"
