Dad had his MRI results interpreted by his doctor. The report read Established infarct and cerebral atrophy. Big scary words. The doctor’s diagnosis was ischemic dementia.

I am thankful for a few things.

That his recent dizziness is not caused by yet another stroke. The doctor explained that the word “established” in the report meant “existing”.

That his condition is mild. Usually he is just forgetful and a bit confused. I hope that it does not get progressively worse.

Dad was happy with the results. He was upbeat and more cheerful for a few days after visiting the doctor.

Thanks to all who dropped by with your comforting words and prayers.
