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 offered to help Sheri carry some things in from the car last night, ( a rare moment indeed) they were not too heavy so Sheri said sure. Sheri went on ahead and unlocked the front door. She went in and with in a few seconds Bob came in as well. About an hour later it was raining and Sheri went and looked out the kitchen window to see how hard it was raining, It was already dark so Sheri had to flip the outside light on. There much to Sheri's surprise, was Sheri's car with both the trunk and both side doors... wide open.
Nothing, and I mean nothing can be left to "Al's" devices. What was she thinking?      :(


  1. Alzheimer's disease (AD), also known in medical literature as Alzheimer disease, is the most common form of dementia. Although Alzheimer's disease develops differently for every individual, there are many common symptoms.Early symptoms are often mistakenly thought to be 'age-related' concerns, or manifestations of stress.

  2. this happens to me all the time. I have not yet gotten into the habit of going after DH to turn off lights, shut doors, flush toilets, etc. Some day I'll learn !!
