Bob's diagnosis in 2008 was "frontotemporal dementia secondary to Alzheimer's Disease". So Sheri is not always sure what traits are attributed to what disease. She just knows that it does not really even matter any more because Bob is not Bob and "Al" does not know the difference.
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.
