We haven't had much good news lately. The covid pandemic overwhelms us. Just when we hoped cases were slowing down, we've had a resurgence. Hubs and I are grateful that no one in our family has been infected, though we have friends who have gotten very sick from covid. The good news is they survived.
We all need some good news. Despite the virus that's consuming our attention, disrupting our lives, we need to look for something positive. I know this is tiny, but new episodes of TV shows are airing (or going to air next week).
My family got some good news last month. An explanation of what's happening with Hubs. After he went through extensive neurological and psychological testing, we were told that his brain was so battered by the TIA (stroke) he had last October and three seizures (between April and July) the aging process accelerated. (Okay, that sounds better than saying dementia has kicked in.) Then we got the good news. Medication and being more active can slow down his brain's aging.
That's true for all of us. Being active--physically, mentally, and socially--can slow down the aging process. That's good news, indeed.
I'm so grateful for our doctors who've tried to discover why Hubs is changing. Finally, having an explanation is helping us deal with the present and the future.
