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 needed some time to get laundry and other chores done around the house so she gave Bob his beads and turned on his favorite singer Daniel O"Donnell. Part of the DVD apparently had a scratch in it and  the DVD got stuck. Dear confused "Al" acting on Bob's problem solving experience, reached down to his beads, and without looking up mumbled "maybe if I move these around a little bit it will come back on:)
Gotta love him~

  1. I find it so interesting as some one who has never known any one with Alzheimers how Bob is able to relate unrelated things together. The way I can relate to it is like a superstition. The belief that this one thing can and will effect this unrelated thing in my favor.
