Jeanne from Florida

Although my husband, Mike, still functions pretty well, he has a lot of hearing loss, which can be frustrating for us both. He does seem to have other issues that he is being tested for now. High blood pressure, and possible heart conditions. His family mostly the men have a history of early heart disease. Patience is something that all care givers need to have. That is not an easy task sometimes. I also make sure he gets all of his medications. He has been able to get off of a few of them, possible because he works out daily.
