Fourth Anniversary of Steve's Ketone Rebirth (May 21, 2012)
Yesterday, May 21, 2012, was the fourth anniversary of the day Steve started taking coconut oil to provide ketones as an alternative fuel to glucose for his brain, with very positive results. He is now 62 years old and in his eleventh years of symptoms related to early onset Alzheimer's disease. Much has happened in these four years, both setbacks and recoveries. Fortunately, we are in a recovery phase. We have surprises all of the time that lead me to believe that everything he was is still in there, but he has a problem getting access to it.
I will post a point by point update in the near future.
In the meantime, here is a little bit of my funny old Steve coming out to visit yesterday:
