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

Well the frozen the tundra has another blanket of snow. This is the winter that will never end.  Sheri is celebrating by cutting down the few daffodils that bloomed to save them from the cold and enjoy the firsts blooms of her beloved garden.
But more important than that, Sheri will take Bob and "Al" out of the nursing home today, one more battle won. He will start at an Adult Day Care tomorrow. Sheri prays that all will go well and "they" will adjust quickly. The center assured Sheri that they will keep him busy with projects, Sheri is happy about that.
In the mean time today, Sheri will try to take care of her own needs she will go to the doctor to get the results of her 5 year cancer scan she is praying for a clean scan...she does not have time to deal with cancer again, as a caregiver for Bob and "Al" Alzheimer's controls her life, but Sheri knows God is good, and He has a plan for her life...
