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

Bob and Al are still asleep
the night was long filled with
groans and grief.

Groans from Bob as he twists and turns
Grief from Sheri as she moarns the life she yearns

Pain Bob feels as he shifts in bed
Pain Sheri feels of a relationship...dead

Psalm 10:14

But you, O God, do see trouble and grief; you consider it to take it in hand. The victim commits himself to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.
