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" still haven't figured out which way to turn when they come out of the bathroom in this tiny house Sheri rented, (after losing theirs to foreclosure in 2011.) He came out of the bathroom with his laundry in his hands (which was a blessing in itself)  he actually turned to the left (which was correct) "Al" scanned the field of play, tuning his head left then right, then left... holding his laundry tight under his arm (Sheri was so excited she was standing on the side lines rooting for him) and then out of nowhere the cat walked by, blocked his play and.... he turned to the right and walked all the way, around the other way to get to the bedroom landing the clothes just to the left of the goal post, missing the extra points. "Al" was so close, Sheri really thought he was gonna make it this time.   :)
(and Sheri apparently, is watching way to much football)
