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"

There are such cycles of feelings
With this dreadful  disease
I can laugh, I can cry
Or share nothing, if I please.

But my heart's always heavy
There is no way out
Handling everything alone
Too many things to count.

To find joy
I must look upward
To a place full of hope
Where Bob and "Al" will be free
But until then... I must cope.

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
