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 still sick. Poor Bob wants to help. Sheri says "okay" trying to make him feel useful, "can you get me a glass of water the kitchen?" "Sure" Bob replies, with is thumb in his belt loop stretching out his back in his usual way, he starts his journey down the short hall. "Al" returns a few seconds later and says "sorry to bother you, but wheres the kitchen?"
(heavy sigh)
