Alzheimer's Seminars

Well, Dr appointment went well.  The Psychiatrist was very nice.  She said she didn't think he needed to be seen on a regular basis.  I agreed with her.  She said the delusions will become more and more apparent, but, do what I've been doing so far.  Don't make a big deal about any of it.

She asked him about the "Man".  He said it was real to him but, did not think he posed a threat to husband.  He just said he is always there.  And, wears his clothes.

Glad that is over with.

Husband has been in good spirits these last few days.  We did however, have a rough night last night.  He was thinking we were on a plane and kept telling me to duck my head.  Around 5:30 this morning, he woke me up and asked me to get his brand new white sweater he had just bought.  I have a white sweater, so I gave that to him, told him to put it on.  He looked at it over and over and finally said, no, that wasn't the one. I got him back to bed now, he is asleep.  Seemed a little agitated and confused.

My neighbor brought me an article in the paper about the local Alzheimer's Caregiver's seminar they are beginning.  It's every Thursday from 10 am til noon.  It starts this Thursday, and goes for 7 weeks.  I am going to attend.  It may give me some information I may not know about.  She has offered to watch husband and the dog.  I have to start somewhere.  Actually looking forward to going.

After being woke up from a deep sleep with husband acting as he did, I am in deep thought.  I'm also tired.  I shouldn't think.  It's not good for my health.  I don't know why I get this way when he has delusions.  Maybe because it's still pretty new to me?

Husband is beginning to get restless again.  He is not in a good frame of mind this morning.

We shall see what today brings.
