Its been a while since I’ve posted regularly. Life has been busy with the addition of a little one. Our baby girl is doing so well, gaining weight and amazing us every day. She’s just the love of all of our lives and brings us so much joy. Dad does well with her and I truly think having a baby around has done wonders for him. I love watching him with her.

Dad is doing pretty well these days. He still has daily hallucinations but they’re not as terrifying- mostly annoying to him. He’s often chasing them out of the house or yelling at them. Despite his daily visitors throughout the day and his usual Lewy quirks and ticks, Dad is much better these days. We don’t know how long his “good” streak will last but it’s nice to see Dad back in action. He is certainly more active and wants to stay busy. These days, he’s getting up early, showered and dressed so he can go out. He’s all about going out every day. He often gets on Mom’s case that she’s not getting dressed quickly enough. He always wants to go out for lunch or dinner and run errands. If Mom needs a day to stay at home to do bills and paperwork, Dad gets a little miffed. He expects to go out every day. When I’m there, I take him out as much as I can.

Right now, my Husband, daughter and I are in Australia for a little while. Mom seems to be doing okay on her own with Dad. Her brother is there visiting for a few weeks so that’s great she has some company. My sister will be heading home shortly, too, for the summer and then we’ll be back there in a bit.

I’ll try to update more regularly now that things are settling down.
