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 writes this blog in hopes that it might give others a glimpse of day to day life with someone with severe memory loss, and cognitive impairment. But by writing this blog she has learned to view others differently as well. Even though she has always considered herself a somewhat compassionate person, she has learned to look deeper into the faces of the people she meets, to look for their shadows. We all have them. Some shadows have visable scars but most do not. Sometimes Sheri will just people watch, and if you watch with your heart open... you will see the trail of shadows following behind them.

Philippians 2:4

English Standard Version (ESV)
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
