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"

Although "the boys" started out adjusting well, things have gotten a little rocky. The night before last "Al" did not sleep at all and as a result was quite cranky yesterday. He appeared to be on warp speed, and having difficulty focusing on any one thing. "Al" was eating so fast he did not really breathe and had that pounding on Bob's chest thing going on. Sheri knows they will be assessing his medications this week to see if they can calm him down. The smaller night staff is not equipped to handle a boss running on empty, and just watching him gave Sheri anxiety. :(


  1. That's the thing with "Al". He is very unpredictable :(. I pray that they are able to adjust Bob's medications. I also pray that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding would guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
