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 and Bob climbed into bed last evening, after watching an ad for the Minnesota State Fair. Within 20 minutes "Al" had asked Sheri 7 times if the fair had started yet, and said he had no interest in going but that it was good for his farmer friends. Sheri is not exaggerating either. The exact same line said several minutes apart. What a very strange disease, what must it be like in his head? Oh and Sheri had no idea he had farmer friends, after 24 years you learn something new every day. :)
