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 almost lost "Al" at the store the other day. Sheri has always tried to let Bob do as much as he can for himself so when they pulled into the parking lot, as usual Sheri unbuckled Bob seat belt and asked him to get out while Sheri got out on her side of the car. Well Sheri dropped her keys on the ground and in the few split seconds it took her to find them and pick them up, "Al" had followed shall we say some other "pleasantly plump" lady with brown hair across the short street headed into the store. EEK! Sheri thinks she will leave the seat belt on "Al" until she gets around to the other door from now on. :(
