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"
It was really nice again in the frozen tundra on Sunday so Sheri decided to take advantage of it and go back out to see the birds. Sheri was snapping away with her camera when she turned to check on Bob. She did not have the right lens on to capture the whole shot, but there stood "Al" waving Bob's cane ( yes, it looks like a saw) straight up in the air. She asked what he was doing and "Al" replied "I am trying to get the birds to look over here for you." The look on his face says it all. Sheri is very grateful they can still share these outings.
Gotta love him. :)
