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 will miss her garden and feeding the birds, but she really thinks this is the best place she has lived. Her tiny house was very dark and for Sheri, that was depressing. She chose carefully when she picked an apartment at the community she manages, in fact she changed apartments several times in her mind before she chose this one, anticipating that she may be here for along time. The patio window faces east for morning sun, and the living room windows face west for evening sun. Then because it has windows on both sides of the apartment the light is amazing, along with the ability to get cross ventilation. Sheri is actually excited about being here. She is also quite amazed that she has actually downsized enough to fit in this space, it feels good to know that everything she owns are only the things that are most important to her, and that they are within these four walls. God is good, all the time.

Matthew 6:19-21 

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
