Mr Fix it

Back before Bob's diagnosis he could fix just about anything. Now-- Not so much. He breaks things, loses things, destroys things but rarely fixes things anymore.

I received some literature from the doctor and also from the Alzheimer's Association. It say's the average cost a  family can expect to spend on a patient with Alzheimer's is approximately $175,000.

I dont think the average cost is including all of the the stuff I've had to replace or pay to fix since Bob's cognitive impairment started.

Today I threw away an electric razor that was in a Bazillion pieces- a can opener that the blades had been pried off of and a flashlight that had the spring ripped off of the base.

Bob looked at the 3 items laying in the garbage can and said "Those things have too many extra parts"
