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"

Sometimes Sheri sits and studies Bob face
Taking her back, to a different time a different place.

A time when Bob's mind was clear and sharp
A time when Bob could take anything apart

A time when the problems he solved were great
A time when those problems had him work late

A time when everyone knew Bob was the boss
A time work came first and Sheri was cross

A time that Sheri did not understand
all the reasons Bob needed a plan

A time  Sheri felt very lost and alone
A time she thought Bob's heart was as cold as a stone

Sometimes Sheri sits and studies Bob face
Taking her back, to a different time a different place.
