Sheri got some much needed time alone yesterday. Daughter number one ( the one who wears her heart on her sleeve) stayed with Bob and "Al" most of the afternoon and Sheri went off by herself with her camera. This caregiver role is draining. She can always tell because her emotions feel raw and at the surface of her heart and mind. But yesterday helped a lot. She roamed parks and the arboretum, but since Bob and "Al" were not with her she was able to go deep into the woods and talk to God. She was worried that in the last few weeks, she had wandered to far for God to listen.
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.
