There have been many difficult changes in "Al" and Sheri has moved her line in the sand many times, but she has been looking at different options for placement. She has been trying to take a logical approach, but honestly there are no good choices here. That is not to say there are not good places, she just means that no one should ever have to make a decision between self preservation and knowing a choice you make will bring about a substantial decline in a loved ones life. Sheri is trying to be honest about her feelings. She knows others must be struggling with this as well. She hears over and over from her readers that they appreciate feeling connected with her on this journey, so Sheri is going to continue to share this process here. Please know she is not asking for pity about the situation she knows it is what it is. Her emotions are raw right now and she is human. As hard as it is she will continue to Pause, Praise and Pray.
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.
