Ah, Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there. I hope your day will be great. Mine? Well, let's see. I don't know how it will be spent. Can't plan anything. It all depends on this monster that lives in my house and invades every part of my life. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So, tomorrow this time, I'll let you know how my Mother's Day was.
Husband slept the entire night with no interruptions. I backed the walker up against the bed again, keeping him from falling out of bed. I got 7 hours of sleep! Yay.
Aside from sleeping all night, husband is not doing well. He has had hallucinations throughout the day, but, mostly at night. Seems when the sun goes down, he begins to get confused and lost. If I turn on lights when it starts to get dark, it's helpful, but, it confuses him no matter what I do.
The hallucinations aren't violent, just complete utter confusion like not knowing who I am or where he is at. He also, at times, begins to try to put his shoes on, telling me he is going to be late for work and needs to get going. It takes me awhile to bring him out of it.
The re-arranging of the closet is on going. Day in, day out. I am amazed at this behavior. He never tires of this. It starts in the morning, with breaks throughout the day. He will put everything back in, sit on the side of the bed, looking at his work. Then, he will start it all over again. Makes me tired just watching him.
His speech is getting garbled. It's hard for even me to understand him.
Father in law came for a visit Thursday. That was nice. Husband enjoys his visits. They talk about old times, when husband was growing up. He'll say things like, "Remember when you fell and skinned your chin on the bike?" Husband, for some crazy reason will remember that. It's crazy. He remembers that, but, can't remember who I am at times. I'll tell ya, this Alzheimer's is one odd disease.
Still no word on whether we have been approved for the new apartment up in the Springs. Maybe I will hear something tomorrow. Maybe today? What a nice Mother's Day gift that would be.
So, here's to Mother's Day. May your day be filled with love, family and gratitude from loved ones.
