Wonderful, Linda! A positive attitude can get us a long way. You are no doubt a big part of why your husband is doing so well.

My husband has continued his hobby. Making pendants from natural stones and silver. What he has put to routine and memory he can still accomplish. He is high IQ pulling from other parts of brain. He has had FTD for alot of years. Take out trash, pick up the mail. Walk to store( close by) and ride the bus to town are the things he is still doing! He doesn't dwell on what he can't do. Very positive attitude.
