Overview

When Lorrie Davis McDonald heard the words, "She is better by 18 months. Perhaps I misdiagnosed her." She was elated! Those words were about her mother-in-law who had been correctly diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

With encouragement from the neurologist, Lorrie came up with a game plan to beat this dreaded disease. Read the incredible and often hilarious account of the journey she and her mother-in-law, Granny, went on. This book is part biography and part "how-to" guide. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will see that there is hope!

A first of its kind, it is a step-by-step journal of all the things that Lorrie did to outwit Alzheimer's. She not only kept Granny at home with her husband of sixty-two years, she allowed her to thrive!

"This book should be read by anyone and everyone who knows somebody with Alzheimer's Disease. It is the first book I remember completely reading at one time."
