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 the funniest things happen. "Al" was on his way to the bathroom... the long way around through the kitchen. Bob walked back to the living room mumbling something and Sheri said "I am sorry I did not hear what you said." Bob spoke again this time clear as day " do you want to take a picture? There is a frog on the wall." Sheri said "do you mean a fly?" "Al" very nonchalantly  repeated "no a frog" as he sat back down in his chair. Sheri chuckled to herself and thought poor man,  so confused. Sheri went to see what he talking about, imagine her surprise when she looked at the wall in the kitchen and low and behold there was a frog!"
 Now, how a frog got on the kitchen wall I have no idea, but it was unusual enough that even "Al" noticed :)
