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 what "Bob" would say, if his words were all his own.
Would he say "Sheri when you leave the room... I feel all alone".

Would he say " I am sorry, for the things I piled around"
I am sorry for the things I lost, like the gift you never found"

Would he say "thank you', for taking care of the family
Would he say "your eyes look tired', and wipe the tears he see's?

Would he know that open arms, are an invitation to hold her tight
Would he know she needs him in the darkest part of night.

Would he say he loves her like the day that they were wed
Would one look be enough to feel the love even with words unsaid

Sheri wonders what would Bob say if his words were all his own
But Bob's voice is a whisper...and Sheri feels... alone.

  2. I hear the grief in your words and I know that you are in a lot of pain. This journey is not without purpose and God is with you every step of the way. You are in my prayers, Sheri. Thank you for opening your heart and being vulnerable. You are helping others on similar journies who might feel so alone and so broken. I am longing for the day when God will wipe every tear away, when the pain of sickness and loss will be no more, when we will be made whole and live for eternity to worship our Saviour. Be blessed my friend.
