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 was driving Bob home from "work" (code for Adult Day Center ) yesterday. It is the same route they have taken for the 5 years he has been "working" there. The route happens to go past their family church Cross of Glory. "Al" with his thumb in Bob's belt loop stretching out Bob's back in his usual way says "Look at that, Cross of Glory...they must have moved it." She paused a moment and then just nodded in agreement and said "Yep.. I guess they did" :)
