Daughter Number One ( The one who wears her heart on her sleeve) picked up " Bob and "Al" from "work" (code for Adult Day Center) one day last week, when Sheri had to work late. They were driving down the road when Bob apparently suggesting stopping to pick some of the purple flowers growing in someone yard because "purple is Mom's favorite color". Daughter Number One was elated that he remembered Sheri's favorite color. So figuring her Dad was having a good memory day she said "and what is your favorite color Dad?" To which "Al" replied " I think I will just stick with Usingers bratwurst." Well, he was there in the moment :)
Small Blessings and simple pleasures.
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.
