While we don't have all the details of the evaluation, we have some of the high points:
- Lyn definitely has Alzheimers. We've been pretty darn sure for the past four years but it is great to get confirmation after previous clinicians have shied away from the topic.
- A second MRI has been suggested so we can have comparisons and can see if the physical changes to the brains structures is already evident. I wonder if we'd be able to determine how much volume has been lost so far.
- A recommendation has been made that Lyn go on daily medication to help mitigate her anxiety and frustration. The current medication is only as needed to get her through a high anxiety bout; not for chronic levels she experiences.
There will be more suggestions and commentary in the written report. If we get nothing more than this, I think it was worth the effort.
