Pratchett has Alzheimer’s

I am just beginning my fourth Discworld novel (Going Postal), and find out today that Terry Pratchett has Alzheimer’s. In a postscript to the announcement, he writes:

I would just like to draw attention to everyone reading the above that this should be interpreted as ‘I am not dead’. I will, of course, be dead at some future point, as will everybody else. For me, this maybe further off than you think – it’s too soon to tell. I know it’s a very human thing to say “Is there anything I can do”, but in this case I would only entertain offers from very high-end experts in brain chemistry.
