Muhammad Ali and His Caregiver

No matter what the disease, an important part of surviving daily is the caregiver.

You hear about the suffering of the person who is ill but you rarely hear about what happens to the one who lives with them and what they go through.

In an article from the June issue of AARP BULLETIN, they take an in depth look at Muhammad Ali and his wife-caregiver Lonnie, and what their life looks like in the day to day battle with Parkinson's Disease.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
