"Eat lots of raw vegetables! Chew at least 20 times before swallowing! Drink water three times a day!" These are the instruction that my father would repeat over and over as a gastrointerologist to his patients. My father is a famous doctor in the medical world. He is in medical history books as one of the innovators for endoscopy. If you ever had a polyp removed with a scope, the instrument your doctor used is the very instrument that my father invented back in the 1970's.
Sadly, my father has Alzeheimer's now. He was diagnosed almost 2 years ago. It has been very hard for me. His memory lasts for about 10 minutes and he forgets what we talked about. He even forgets that he ever saw me. My husband and I are going through similar struggles with our parents. His mother has Alzeheimers/dementia as well. Watching your parents grow old is so hard...
I love writing. It has always been my passion. I also love people and helping others.
