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 has several dear friends from church that have been visiting Bob and "Al" at the facility, Sheri is so grateful for them. Seeing him there is difficult for her. The aids have set a goal for Sheri to be able to leave there with out crying.
Psalm 34:18
 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.


  1. Sheri: These are the words in a song I think of when something like your situation comes into my mind:
    You and me against the world,
    Some times it feels like you and me against the world,
    when all the others turn their backs and walk away,
    you can count on me to stay.

    Remember when the circus came to town
    and you were frightened by the clown,
    wasn't it nice to be around someone that you knew,
    some one who was big and strong and looking out for
    You and me against the world,
    Some times it feels like you and me against the world
    and for all the times we've cried I always felt that
    God was on our side.

    And when one of us is gone,
    and one of us is left to carry on,
    then remembering will have to do,
    our memories alone will get us through
    think about the days of me and you,
    you and me against the world.


  2. Thank you for reminding me of that song! :)
