The beginning of the end chapter 2
Sheri got to the facility and spoke to the staff. They said that Bob and "Al" had a change in status although they were not sure what had happened. He was not able to bare weight and was unresponsive. Sheri was a little confused because she and the girls had seen him unresponsive quite often but the nurses said they had not seen this previously and wanted him checked out. So off to the hospital by ambulance "they" went. Sheri met the ambulance there but they had already taken "the boys" back to do the initial intake and they would not allow Sheri back in the room. Sheri kept telling them not to leave him alone, explaining the degree of his disease and the nurse assured her some one would be with him.
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.
