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 let Bob and "Al" help her match up lids to all the plastic containers yesterday, as Minnesota has turned from the frozen tundra into the very wet and soggy tundra. Sheri was a little surprised to see that he was not able to do this himself. He would pick up one lid try it , if it did not fit put it down and with in seconds pick it back up and try the same lid on the same container again. The cycle would continue until Sheri would intervene, but Sheri is finally learning this disease because she "chose" when to intervene so she could work on something else... what does it really matter right? :)
