Three years into their marriage, Judith Fox's husband, Dr. Edmund Ackell, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Over the course of the next ten years, Fox watched as the man who used to perform surgery, fly planes, and run universities, forgot how to turn on the coffee maker or place a phone call. Fox is a photographer and decided to document his daily struggles with Alzheimer's. She's collected those images in a book called "I Still Do: Loving and Living with Alzheimer's." Fox joins us to talk about the book and her role as wife, care-giver, and photographer.
