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 can already feel herself starting worry about the onset of winter in the frozen tundra. She would love to convince herself to enjoy the fall, her favorite season, but she looks at Bob and "Al" and sees his frailty and she dreads the winter even before it's here. Focus on one day at a time Sheri, one day at a time.

Matthew 6:25-34

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

  1. Let's take the worry for the upcoming winter and put a different spin on it. How can we help you get ready for the winter? Did you get the heating system tuned up? Did you hire someone to shovel the drive and walks? Do you have your blizzard kit all stashed: flashlights and cookies? Do you have puzzles, paint, books, and movies for those days when "work" is cancelled? Do you have snow-tires and roadside assistance? Yeah - I'm also a "let go let God" person, but there's no reason not to "be prepared". Big Hugs!
