Wheelchair's & curbs go bump!!

The weekend has ended, it was a decent weekend.  Kind of quiet, not much to do.  Cleaning, laundry, car serviced, church yesterday.

I had to dress husband yesterday morning.   Said he felt weak and was a little out of sorts.  Asked him if he felt strong enough to go to church.   He said he did.

When I got his wheelchair out of the car at church, he wanted to wheel himself.  I was walking along side of him when he began going very fast.  I told him to go this way, as he was heading straight for the curb.  He did not hear me.  I stood there watching him heading for the curb, all the while calling his name, loudly.  He hit the curb as I ran to him.  It's a wonder he didn't fly out of the wheelchair.

Once I got to him, he had a strange look in his eyes.  I was upset.  People were beginning to stare.  Not in a bad way, but, like me, in a "what the heck just happened", kind of way.

He said he thought I was pushing him.  If he thought that, why would he head straight for the curb?  That was strange and a little scary for me.  He had to of heard me, I was that close to him.

I was a little shook up about that.  Once we got into church, I kept a close eye on him.  He seemed fine after that.

This morning I have to go to DMV to renew my driver's license.  That should be interesting.  Husband is staying home with Jack.  I get to go by myself.  

I don't know where I'm at today.  This is some tough stuff.
