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 knows it is hard to believe, especially with the picture she posted of  "the boys" with Sir Cooper, but Sheri found out yesterday that Cooper is still very sick. His white blood cell count is through the roof and his lungs are full of infection again. The Vets are baffled at why with all the antibiotics he has been on why he can't kick this. So they reaching for a last resort. 8 days of injected high powered antibiotics. An antibiotic that can cause liver damage and hearing loss, that is not commonly given to puppies because of the toxicity, it reserved for  the sickest of dogs.  The vet in all kindness said " even if Cooper winds up with hearing loss, the other choice is to have no puppy." So that being said we are starting the injections and we will hope it works. So again, Sheri is asking for prayer for Sir Cooper. Thanks so much for all your support.
