This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.

Living with Bob and Al

Sheri sometimes wishes
she could remember who she was
before this masquerade began
Do you know the one?

The one that took their life away
the one that brought the pain
The one that leaves them empty
Bringing tears like rain.

The one that robbed
her family of the joy that lfe should hold
the one that robbed her husband
and "Daddy "stories left untold.

She wishes she could find herself again
just run away and hide, to laugh and dance
and smile again, if only for a while...

This masquerade seems never ending
seems it is evolving day by day
She prays for strength and patience
At least ...just for today.

"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you."
Psalm 39:7
