Sheri never really thought that she would have to come up with a way to keep food out of Bob's reach. Last night between 6:00pm and 8:00pm, "Al" ate the following:
Steak dinner with baked potato, bread and salad
2 chocolate chip cookies
Ice cream bar (Weight Watchers)
Large Dinner roll with butter cheese (Sandwich style)
2 large bagels with butter cheese and bologna
Each time he got up to get something, bent over with back pain, Sheri said "Bob we just ate," "Al" would respond with tilted head "We did? Well, what did we eat?" EEK! Sheri needs a new plan.
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.
