Emergency room visit Part 3:
Sheri was upset to see "the boys" in such distress but she took a deep breath and passed through the curtain. Drawing on her years of experience, knowing "Al" would mimic her mood, she entered the room with a big smile on her face. "Well hello there!" she chirped. Bob shook himself out of "Al's" blank but grimacing stare and looked up at her. "Al" paused for a very long moment and then a cautious smile crossed Bob's thin lips and "Al" said "well, howdy!" Sheri could tell "the boys" knew she was at least a familiar face, and at that moment, that was enough.
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.
