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 is tired. The procedure went well. The doctor said he had never needed to do this many levels and that Bob back was really bad, but he did say he was a great patient and agreed with Sheri that Bob has an extremely high pain tolerance. They went easy on the sedation when Sheri explained the cognitive issues so that was a blessing. Sheri was able to convince the nurses that they would have the best success with "Al" if they directed him slowly and specifically. Which they figured out quickly when they said "Now loosen your pants and climb up and the bed" and his pants dropped to the floor. :)
Thank you for the prayers.

  1. I am glad that everything went well for Bob. Will he be staying in the hospital? Maybe you can get some rest. Last month my husband had his appendix out. He was in the hospital for four days. If you asked him, he had his gall blatter out. That was 22 years ago. Lol
