Bob keeps asking Sheri if she wants to help with his puzzles. ( The 36 piece Alzheimer puzzles) in order to make him feel good about doing them, and to make sure she can use his puzzle time to get other things done Sheri has developed a standard answer. Sheri says "Who me? No... I am not good at puzzles. I am the picture taker, YOU are the puzzle maker." "Al" smiles from ear to ear. Some times she just has to get creative :)
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.
