Sheri said she would continue to share this journey and she will. She just can not get her arms around this. She is trying to focus on Bob's safety, but she realized last night while Bob was snoring next to her in bed, that one of the first things that drew her to Bob many years ago, was that he made HER feel safe, and although "Al" has not been able to do that in so very many years, his physical absence will bring back a vulnerability for herself, that she has never grieved or addressed.
Sheri needs to pause, praise and pray even if that means doing so in anger and despair.
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.
