Reality number one for me and my two brothers was our total shock and anguish over our parents’ deteriorated condition. Dad’s MS had finally won the battle with his ability to walk so that he would be forever confined to a wheelchair. Equally disturbing, his disease had begun to aggressively attack his cognitive functions, particularly his short-term memory, organizational skills, and attention span.
