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"
The night before last "Al" did not sleep at all. Sheri was so tired and frustrated knowing she had to go to work exhausted she knew she better do something to improve her day. The weather man said it was foggy out at 6:45 am so she grabbed her camera for a just in case opportunity. She was crabby all the way to the Adult Day Center, and she could tell "Al" was reflecting back her mood. After dropping "them" off Sheri stopped at their favorite park which is right by Sheri's work. It was just what she needed to clear her fog from her mind. ( well it helped till about 2 in the afternoon, then Mrs. crabby came back:) She knows she won't be able to continuing caring for Bob at home if she can not get any sleep, that situation will not help any one.
