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 thinks she needs a break today
She just can't keep the tears away

Seeing the confusion on Bob's face
When "Al's" thoughts disappear without a trace

Seeing "them" look for things misplaced
Hearing "their" words when they are out of place

Seeing his daughters hide their fears
Seeing his daughters hide their tears

Watching her life as if it is not her own
Trapped in a nightmare , but awake... and alone




He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds."
--Psalms 147:3
