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"

Sheri took Bob out and about yesterday looking for places to take some pictures. It was a beautiful day and the slight breeze in the air was perfect. Sheri stopped to get some gas and when she pulled up to the pump, "Al" looked at the sign with the regular and diesel prices and said " How can the price be $3.33 and $3.69 at the same time? That makes no sense at all, how do they decide what to charge you, the color of your car?"   :)
Heavy sigh...
