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 sharing space
"Al's" confusion is showing on Bob's face.

Bob's back hurts, while "Al's" is good
"Al" is hungry, Bob doesn't like the food.

Bob lingers in the hallway, doesn't want to budge
Waiting  for someone for something
but "they" don't  know what.

Bob wants a job, they told him it's okay?
"Al" said he's not sure what the plan is today

Bob said to Sheri "there is no point to all this"
"Al" said to Sheri "where are the kids?"

Sheri says "Well, I will see you tomorrow
and Bob, you should give back the shirt that you borrowed"  :)
