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 wonders if she will ever reach a place of peace. She knows this is a process. She is turning to the word of God daily for acceptance and understanding. In many ways the stress of caring for Bob and "Al" and the shear exhaustion of these past 10 years, has only just started to subside, 6 months after placement. She actually finds herself crying more now then early on. Emotions have been buried deep for very long time, survival mode is what Sheri always called it.
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

  1. My wife and I are where you and the boys were 10 years ago (or maybe 9). This morning I was talking about the constant fatigue/fogginess I feel, not really meaning anything by it. She walked up behind me, put her arms around me, and started to cry. Sometimes I think that I put what's coming out of my mind more than she can. Those who love and care for AD sufferers carry an enormous load, but I think you are on the right path by turning to Him to help you carry that load. Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22. God bless you. Heading Somewhere
