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"

This slow death known as Alzheimer's is pure evil. "Al's" aggressive behaviors forced Bob to be sent to the Geriatric Mental Health ward at the hospital yesterday. Where he will spend at least the next 2 weeks and where he will no doubt be medicated into a catatonic state. That may be a hard statement to hear but it is just a fact.
Sheri has no strength today to pause, praise and pray.

  1. ....then I will pray for you, dear Sheri, and hold you before God's throne and ask Him for moment by moment grace and strength.
    Love, KZ

  3. I, along with the others, am pausing, praising and praying for you, and will continue to, as He holds you in His arms and provides the peace, love and comfort that only He can. God be with you, now and always.

  4. So sorry Sheri, this is so heartbreaking. When my husband became angry, I was forced to have him medicated, and it broke my heart. My sister said to me, do you think he is happy being this upset and angry all the time? It helped some to reframe it this way. My prayers are with you, Sherri.
