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"

Bob and "Al" are sharing space
"Al's" confusion is showing on Bob's face.

Bob wants to work, ("Al" thinks he does)
"Al's" been to places, Bob never was.

Bob searches for memories, of his life in the past
The memories are there, but just out of "Al's"grasp.

Bob strong and able, gentle and kind
"Al" moving slowly through the rest of Bob's mind.

2 Corinthians verse 4
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
