Default Cognitive issues

A Doctor from Emory called me yesterday, and for some reason they feel Bruce has cognitive issues. I already felt that, but still I guess they saw some of it too. Makes me so sad. I haven't discussed this with him yet until I talk to Nicole more in depth.

Sorry to hear that Joni. That must sting really bad. Praying it will stop right where it is at and won't progress further.
Hugs to you.

Joni... I'm so sorry. It's a brutal diagnosis. There are several of us here that are dealing or have dealt with this at various levels of intensity. Please ask questions... we're here for you and we have lots of links and resources when you're ready for them. As far as discussing it with your husband... be prepared, he may or may not actually even believe you. Good luck to you both.

I'm so sorry to hear that added to the list of things you already have to deal with... as others have said, I hope it stays mild. He may already know something is up, or he may completely deny that is wrong, you won't know until you address it with him. Sending you a hug.
