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 very touched by the outpouring of prays and support. Unfortunately the roller coaster ride of emotions will continue for a while regarding a placement location as the place she had chosen can not provide a shared male room that would be covered by the Elderly Waiver Program, for which Bob is a part of. The other option being to pay  between $500 and $1300 out of pocket over and above Bob's social security. This not feasible. So Sheri will continue to put one foot in front of the other until she can make a new plan.  Sheri does not want to take advantage of all your prayer time, and she did mumble and grumble to God a few times yesterday...but she would not quite call it being on speaking terms yet. So please continue to pray as you see fit.

  1. I will keep praying! And it is all right to be angry at God. I take it to heart that we are children of God...we don't have to be "adults" of God. So it is be angry, and even have tantrums. I remember many nights screaming "I hate you!" to Him when my mom was so ill. I meant it at the time, and yet I also knew he loved/s me anyway. He loves you too, and understands. This is so frigging hard, and I am so sorry...and my prayers are with you. Janice in San Diego
