Living with Alzheimer's
The family of retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is going public with a very emotional story involving her husband stricken with Alzheimer's disease. John O'Connor is 77 years old. His condition has deteriorated to the point where he needs 24 hour care... and his son is sharing a story that is hitting home for many families dealing with Alzheimer's. John O'Connor has actually found a new romance with a fellow patient --and his family is happy for him. It turns out this is more common that you might imagine.

The Alzheimer's Association estimates more than 5 million people in the United States have Alzheimer's and it commends the O'Connors for helping raise public awareness.

According to the Alzheimer's association, some of the leading signs of the disease include:
- memory loss
- difficulty performing familiar tasks
- Problems with language
- Disorientation to time and place
- Poor or decreased judgment

For more information on Alzheimer's disease, a great resource is the Alzheimer's Association.

You can find them on the web at www.alz.org,

The Power of Prayer
When it comes to the power of prayer, Americans have wide and varied views.
Some believe prayer helps to forge a personal connection with God... Others use faith to become a better person, find happiness or give their lives meaning.

Others use prayer to help with problems in their lives, or the lives of their citizens. This month, as the state of Georgia descends deeper into drought, Gov. Sonny Perdue has not only ordered water restrictions... he's called on a higher power. He joined lawmakers and ministers on the steps of the state Capitol to pray for rain. Alabama Gov. Bob Riley issued a proclamation declaring a week in July as "Days of Prayer for Rain" to "humbly ask for His blessings and to hold us steady in times of difficulty."


Tonight we're taking you calls, comments and questions on the power of prayer.

Joining us will be Deepak Chopra, one of the world's greatest leaders in the field of mind-body medicine, and Mehmet Oz, author of "You Staying Young: The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty."

You can also click on the comments section below to share your thoughts online.
We'll be reading some of your comments during the show.

Tune in tonight at 10p ET for 'when' and 'how' to call.
Speak to you tonight!

When doctors play judge
When I go to a doctor, I expect him or her to treat me, whether I have a sore throat, a stomach-ache or something more serious. So when I found out that doctors around the country are refusing to treat patients because the patients' needs conflict with their religious beliefs, I just had to look into it further.

Turns out, it's all legal. Doctors can turn down patients and they are doing exactly that. In Pennsylvania, a woman who had been raped was denied the morning-after pill, which would prevent her from getting pregnant. In the Midwest, a woman was denied the same treatment after she had unprotected sex with a boy she was dating. And in Texas, we met a woman who told us her doctor refused to give her birth control pills because he was a Catholic and it threw his moral compass off course. "He told me he didn't believe in prescribing birth control, he thought it was morally wrong that I shouldn't be having sex and he launched into a lecture about ethically how I need to rethink things," said the woman, who asked not to be identified.

We spoke with one Catholic doctor in Manassas, Virginia, who says he's rejected at least a dozen patients who asked for birth control pills. Dr. Scott Ross told us, "I think we as physicians have the right to uphold our own moral grounds and we don't have to do everything that's asked of us."

The American Medical Association agrees. "Any physician has the opportunity that if because of personal beliefs religious or moral beliefs that they can refuse to provide services, but we also believe that that physician has an obligation to provide an avenue where the patient can get the care that they're seeking," said Dr. Edward Langston at the A.M.A. We found that eight states have laws giving doctors the legal right to reject treatment.

Tell us what you think. Should doctors be able to deny patients care because it conflicts with their own religious beliefs? Is there room for both religion and medicine in the exam room? How do you think this might affect the quality of care patients receive?

And be sure to tune in soon to watch our story. We'll share some of your thoughts on the air.
