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 is tired, the hustle and bustle of the move, and dealing with "Al's" changes has caught up with her. If she were honest she would tell you she sometimes feels defeated by "Al", almost as if she stills believes somehow that if she keeps the routine the same as possible and keeps him engaged she can win this challenge. She knows in her head that this will not change the progression of the disease and it is not Bob's fault, but she does feel like she is fighting a fierce battle, but the real battle is in her heart.

 “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Is. 40:31
