The Explanation

The Explanation This relates to a one off cocky fem  med person I met yesterday 

Any aged person at 88 plus who has four sources of income and has lived in five different countries and travelled to at least 78 countries some many times, and has written his memoirs and is still posting on his blog after nearly ten years and 1, 262 posts plus comments and still writes for News Corp  but has lost his hearing aid.  has no desire to be belittled and be put down by some one job  medical nanny, your assumptions are way out of whack. I refer to other persons  of similar age not all suffer from dementia as some medical staff would love to presume and be treated as if one were a juvenile or retard.
Brains of older people are slow because they know so much
.

People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so, too, do humans take longer to access information when their brains are full.

Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive decline.
The human brain works slower in old age, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more.
Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem, it is nature's way of making older people take more exercise, although this paragraph does not apply to me, yet.

          The other five Med staff  I met during my pre op check were great.
           I remained cool in case by chance I might not survive the op next week.
           Must not antagonise the people with the cutlery.

           Vest.....Back soon.

There is a wonderful Far Side cartoon where his usual dorky boy sticks his hand up and asks the teacher 'May I be excused? My brain is full'. And I sympathise.
Good luck with the surgery next week.

My darling Rosemary is having a weekend holiday plus with our No 4 son and family, At least 75% of my brain will also take a holiday. I am already having conversations with our two moggies.
It is ghostly Quiet.

Vest. Having decoded you recent mailout re extended family,I shall presume, the only one Family member had the spirit to reply was tiny Tim, in this situation seems to fit the Scrooge adaptation quite adequately.Verily It doth seem Tiny Tim was pleased with the outcome due to your generosity. Your recent suggestion of a restricted family trust is probably the best idea, your holdings will never be safe until.

I will worry about the bill when I get it. What have you been in hospital

Her little break,was it supervised whom did she go with,I am glad your

sad to see her like that.
