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"
"Al" has entered a stage she has not heard much about. Sheri thinks she will call it the destructive stage. Everything Bob touches "Al" try's to tear apart, either with Bobs hands or with Bob's mouth. This is placing new parameters around what she can do to keep "them" active and engaged. He no longer recognizes objects so even Sheri's laptop has been fair game. Sheri is a problem solver by nature so ...game on. :)
