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 another long weekend in the frozen tundra. Minus zero temps meant outside options were really, well... not an option. At the suggestion of Daughter Number 1 (the one who wears her heart on her sleeve), Sheri tried coloring with Bob and "Al". She tried this about 2 years ago and Bob was very upset and said "And why exactly, am I doing this?" Well lots of things have changed in the past couple of years, and Bob did not question this new task. Two things happened. "Al"decided he would  rather color the on the cover of coloring book, while Bob (the Mr. Fixit that he was)  was preoccupied trying to figure out why the color pencil would not work on the waxy cover of the coloring book. :)
Simple pleasures, Sheri, simple pleasures.
